With April being Stress Awareness Month and American stress levels on the rise since 2016, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released its report on 2018’s Most and Least Stressed States.

To determine the states with the highest stress levels, WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 38 key metrics. The data set ranges from average hours worked per week to personal bankruptcy rate to share of adults getting adequate sleep.

New Mexico came in at No. 2 on the list of Most Stressed States behind Louisiana. The state ranked:

Stress Levels in New Mexico (1=Most Stressed, 25=Avg.):

• 7th in Adults in Fair/Poor Health
• 17th in Job Security
• 9th in Median Credit Scores
• 19th in Housing Affordability
• 2nd in Percent of Population Living Below the Poverty Line
• 6th in Divorce Rates
• 2nd in Crime Rate per Capita
