A study into the most stressed demographics in the U.S. has revealed some interesting results.
Bloomberg News reports she’s a woman in her late 20s or early 30s, taking her young son to school on the bus.
Or, more accurately, one big ball of composite demographic stress. This woman is a blend of what the American Psychological Association’s 2014 'Stress in America' survey, released on Wednesday, identifies as the most stressed-out parts of American society. While average reported stress levels are down—at 4.9 on a 10-point scale, compared with 6.2 in 2007—'stress is not going down as much for women, for people with low incomes, for young adults, or for people who are parents,' says Norman Anderson, chief executive officer of the APA.
Money remains the top source of stress across the U.S., with work close behind for those employed, followed by the economy, family responsibilities, and personal health concerns.
