Study: Ohio cities are stressed out
We could really use a day at the beach.
Driving the news: Ohio's biggest communities are all among the most stressed cities in the U.S., a new WalletHub study finds.
What they did: Researchers tracked a variety of health, economic and social metrics to see what a city's residents have to worry about.
- Factors like longer work days, bad traffic congestion, high child care costs and poor sleep schedules help ramp up the stress.
What they found: Columbus ranks as the 47th-most stressed city out of the 182 studied.
- Believe it or not, that's much better than our Buckeye State counterparts.
By the numbers: Cleveland is No. 1, followed by Toledo (No. 10), Akron (No. 16) and Cincinnati (No. 21)
😬 Our thought bubble: Sorry, everybody. Axios Columbus writers are probably skewing our numbers.
- Ohio's sports teams also aren't helping matters.
