INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Indy people are stressed out.

In fact, the city is the most stressed city in the country. This is the result of a survey by Just Great Lawyers.

The researchers surveyed 2,700 people from 25 major cities in the United States, including New York, Seattle, and Houston. The study team asked respondents to indicate their main life stressors. The results showed that the top five sources were money / finance, work, health care expenses, family, and romantic relationships.

When all the factors were combined, Indianapolis ranked first as the most stressed city in the country. The city ranked second for money / finance, fifth for politics, and ninth for work / career.
