Top 10 Most Stressed Cities in America [Photo Gallery]

WalletHub has released a study that analyzes 150 of the nation's largest cities and how its residents stack up when it comes to stress.

Are you stressed? You're not alone. In the U.S. more than a third of the population is stressed, according to WalletHub.

The nation's stress levels increased for the first time in 10 years in part to workplace-related issues. Some cities, based on unemployment, cost of living and other factors, experience higher levels than others. 

In order to call attention to the most stress-affected cities, WalletHub compared 150 of the most populated cities across 30 metrics including unemployment rate, divorce rate and suicide. Click through the slideshow to view which cities rank at the top.
