Montana is a much slower paced location than places like Los Angeles or New York City, but that doesn't mean we Montanans don't suffer from stress.

Recently the website Zippa set out to find the most stressed out city in each state.

To find the most stressed out city in Montana they looked at the following:

  • Unemployment
  • Hours Worked
  • Commute Times
  • Income-To-Home-Price Ratio
  • Percent of Uninsured Population

The higher the rank, the most stressed the city was considered.

Bozeman, Montana

Zippa says this college town is the most stressed out city in Montana.

In the past few years Bozeman has grown by leaps and bounds and housing has become almost unaffordable for long time residents.

That has certainly caused plenty of stress for those living there.

Sadly we don't see this trend changing anytime soon, but hopefully the stress levels can and will go down for those living there.
