The data the study used to create its rankings included work-related factors such as average weekly work hours, average commute time, and job satisfaction.

The study also looked at financial stressors like food insecurity, median credit score, and the share of households behind on bills the past 12 months. Heath data like depression rates and family data like the strength of social ties were also considered at.
