Central Falls is the most stressful place in Rhode Island, according to a new study by career expert website Zippia.

In order to measure stress, Zippia selected a set of six criteria that reflect its root causes for most people and used them to look at the 18 places in Rhode Island with a population over 2,000.

  1. Percentage of population with a long commute (over 30 minutes)
  2. Unemployment Rate
  3. Hours worked
  4. Population density
  5. Percentage of income spent on rent
  6. Percentage of population without health insurance

According to Zippia, the higher any of these were, the more stressed the people of the place are. The rest of the top 10 most stressed places in Rhode Island are Woonsocket, Pawtucket, Pascoag, Providence, East Providence, Cranston, Warwick, Kingston, and Westerly.
