Miami is America's Third Most Stressful City
Sea breezes and sunshine apparently aren't stress busters, as five Florida cities have found themselves in CNBC.com's top ten list of America's most stressful cities. Miami came in third thanks in part to crime, crappy traffic and high unemployment.
divorce rate, commute times, unemployment, violent crime, property crime, suicides, alcohol consumption, mental health, sleep troubles, and the annual amount of cloudy days.
Commute time - minutes: 33.2
Violent crime per 100,000 population: 733.3
Property crime per 100,000 population: 4,678.3
Suicides per 100,000 population: 9.3
Cloudy days annually: 117
The Sunshine State dominated the top ten list. Tampa came in 1st, while Jacksonville came in 4th. Orlando and West Palm Beach also made the top ten.
