PHOENIX — Stress is something we all feel, but people in some Valley cities are more stressed than others.

Personal finance website WalletHub compared the 150 most populated U.S. cities – plus at least two of the most populated cities in each state – on work stress, financial stress, family stress as well as health and safety stress.

Within each category was metrics such as average weekly work hours, job security, median credit score, affordable housing, divorce rate, percentage of adults in fair and poor health and average hours of sleep per night.

Glendale was found to be the most stressed city in the Valley and placed at No. 42 overall out of 182 cities ranked.

The West Valley city was among the top 65 most-stressed cities in all four categories measured.

Phoenix wasn’t far behind at No. 44.

Mesa was next on the list at No. 93 overall, followed by Peoria (No. 104), Tempe (No. 112), Chandler (No. 140) and Scottsdale (No. 150).

Gilbert was determined to be the least-stressed city in the Valley and was No. 159 overall.

The East Valley city got some points for having the fourth-lowest poverty rate and fifth-lowest crime rate.

Tucson, meanwhile, was ranked No. 74.

Cleveland, Ohio, was found to be the most-stressed city, having the greatest amount of financial and family stress from the metrics measured for the categories, as well as the third-most health and safety stress.

The least-stressful city in the country, according to the website, is South Burlington, Vermont.
