With April being Stress Awareness Month, WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia against four key factors to include work-related stress, money-related stress, family-related stress, and health & safety related stress.

Each factor was evaluated using 33 relevant metrics with corresponding weights. Each metric was graded on a 100-point scale, with a score of 100 representing the highest level of stress.
