These Are The 10 Stressed Places In Hawaii

We analyzed over 96 places in Hawaii to identify the ones that are going grey at a young age.

You know that tight feeling in your chest when you start a new job? That’s stress.

And there are certain places in Hawaii that have more to stress out about then just their first day at work.

There are things like dealing with ever-longer commutes, working longer and longer hours, and just trying to find a job in the first place. But which places in Hawaii take being stressed to the next level?

It turns out the good people of Maili have earned the dubious distinction of being the most stressed out place in Hawaii. The city is at the top of the pack of the 10 most stressed out places in the Aloha State:

  1. Maili
  2. Iroquois Point
  3. Makaha
  4. Ewa Beach
  5. Waianae
  6. Ocean Pointe
  7. Nanakuli
  8. Anahola
  9. Pupukea
  10. Ewa Gentry

Read on to see why these places in Hawaii could use a Xanax.

How We Measured Stress In Hawaii (Without Stressing Out)

In order to measure stress, we selected a set of six criteria that reflect its root causes for most people and used them to look at the 96 places in Hawaii with a population over 2,000 according to the 2010-2014 American Community Survey:

  1. Percentage of population with a long commute (over 30 minutes)
  2. Unemployment Rate
  3. Hours worked
  4. Population density
  5. Percentage of income spent on rent
  6. Percentage of population without health insurance

The higher any of these was, the more stressful the people of the place are.

Our data is from the U.S. Census’ American Community Survey for 2010-2014.

We ranked each place from 1 to 96 (with one being the most stressed side of the scale) in the six individual criteria. These ranks were then averaged into a Stress Score, the lowest of which was the most stressed out place in the Aloha State.

Below, we’ll take a look at the standout stress stats for each top 10 most stressed places, and wrap the whole thing up with a detailed ranking of all 96 places we analyzed.

(The least-stressed places in Hawaii are Kaunakakai and Mountain View.)
