Posted By on Wed, Sep 8, 2010 at 1:53 PM

Charlotte has made another list, and this time the news isn't good. Apparently, according to Portfolio.com and bizjournals, our city is the 18th most stressful city in the country. Eek.

The Queen City ranks 18th among the 50 most-stressful places to live and work in the United States, according to the 2010 Stress Rankings for Metro Areas.

Several factors contribute to stress, including unemployment, inclement weather, housing costs, traffic, poverty, crime and pollution. Nowhere is the situation worse than in Detroit, which ranks as the most-stressful metropolitan area in the country, according to the study by Portfolio.com and bizjournals.
