I always saw our fair city as pretty laid back, quiet and serene, but apparently not true, according to this reporting from the Sacramento Business Journal.
“A recent study ranked Sacramentoas the No. 8 most-stressful city, based on analysis of the rate of suicide, divorce, crime, unemployment and long commutes.
“According to the study by Sperling’s Best Places, Tampa-St. Petersburg ranked as the most stressful metro area overall, and five Florida metro areas were ranked in the top 10.
“The study found that Sacramento’s stress comes in the form of high unemployment, an 11.2 percent divorce rate, a one-way average commute time of 27.5 minutes and 478.1 violent crimes per 100,000 people.
“Riverside-San Bernardino, ranked as No. 7 most stressful, was the only other California city among the top 10.”
