How’s your day at work going? Well, we hope it’s not too bad, considering how stressful things can be nowadays. Bills to pay, rent that’s due, long commutes…it’s enough to make you want to tear your hair out. Could things really be any worse?

As it turns out, yes, it could be much worse. Don’t believe us? Well, here at the Movoto Real Estate Blog, we tend to be pretty good at making lists, and it doesn’t stress us out too much, so, we decided to make a list of the absolute most stressful ZIP codes to call home. Some of them will probably be a bit surprising.

The most stressed ZIP codes in the nation were:

1. 44093, Williamsfield, OH
2. 38647, Michigan City, MS
3. 93640, Mendota, CA
4. 36776, Sawyerville, AL
5. 38617, Coahoma, MS
6. 37018, Beechgrove, TN
7. 39743, Crawford, MS
8. 77032, Houston, TX
9. 85172, Stanfield, AZ
10. 29915, Daufuskie Island, SC

Now, you’re probably thinking that there’s no possible way that some little place in Ohio is more stressed out than your home ZIP. To find out how we got these results, just head down to the very next section, where we talk about our methods. If you’re curious about the 50 most stressed out spots, you can check the chart at the bottom and see if your home ranked.

Our Methodology

This isn’t our first national Big Deal List, but let’s go over how exactly we do things for all you first timers out there. First, we made a list of all ZIP codes in the nation that had available data, which was a truly impressive 28,371 places. After that, we analyzed each place using data from the U.S. Census Five Year American Community Survey, in the following eight criteria:

Unemployment rate (the higher, the more stress)
Median household income (the lower, the more stress)
Percent of monthly income spent on rent (the higher, the more stress)
Monthly selected homeowner costs as a percent of income (the higher, the more stress)
Percent of families below the poverty line (the higher, the more stress)
Average commute time (the higher, the more stress)
Percent of population without health insurance (the higher, the more stress)
Mean usual hours worked per week (the higher, the more stress)

It should be noted that all unemployment figures we used were a five-year average from 2008 to 2012.

From there, we ranked each ZIP code in each category from one to 28,371, with numbers closer to one being better rankings. Then, we averaged each place’s rankings into one overall Big Deal Score. The place with the lowest number for that score became our most stressed out ZIP code.

Still not totally convinced? Let’s take a look at each of our top 10 ZIPs in a little more detail to see why they ranked where did. In the meanwhile, why not relax a little? We’re sure you’ve earned it.

So…Are You Sweating Yet? Just reading about how hard these folks work or struggle in their given hometowns leave us feeling exhausted. It even makes that work week ahead of us seem a little less stressful…maybe.


If you’re looking to find a place that offers less gray hair and white knuckles, in work or play, don’t hesitate to drop us a line. We know buying a new home is a stressful experience, but we know some pretty relaxing spots, and we might even be able to make the buying process a little easier on your nerves.

Yeah, Houston, I can dig that. I stress out everytime I go there. :D

The gray areas (no data) are a hoot. I guess no one realizes that NOBODY LIVES IN THOSE AREAS!!!! HELLO!!!

I must be the oddball. My area of eastern NC is dappled in all kinds of shades of red - but I ain't stressed at all.

Maybe I live in the wrong area?
