“Coolest” and most stressful city…

Posted on 06 September 2010

More women than men agree with a Forbes magazine article that ranked Las Vegas as the most stressful city in America, a Review-Journal/8NewsNow poll showed. Overall, 53% of respondents agreed with the Forbes ranking, 40% disagreed and 7% were not sure, according to the Washington, D.C.-based Mason-Dixon Polling & Research firm. Among women, 57% agreed that Las Vegas is the most stressful city, compared with 48% of men. Forty percent of both men and women disagreed. In ranking cities for stress, Forbes put Las Vegas at No. 1 for unemployment and lack of exercise.

 

The most stressful ranking came two weeks after Forbes ranked Las Vegas the “Coolest City” in America based on the number of bars, restaurants, nightclubs, museums, galleries and arena venues, “To 36 million tourists per year, Las Vegas is a place to blow off steam and get away from the pressures of daily life,” the Forbes article said. “But residents of the city are far from carefree. The housing crisis and the recession hit the city hard, and it currently has a 14.5% unemployment rate, the highest of all the cities we studied.”
