These days, it seems like just about every American is stressed for one reason or another. But which areas of the U.S. are home to the most stressed-out people? CNNMoney teamed with the American Psychological Association to answer that question. They came up with the major indicators of stress in urban areas and then broke these factors down into the following categories: economy and money, work, family, lifestyle and crime.

The major indicators included poverty rates, commute times, health status, family size and crime rates. An overall weighted ranking system lead to the following list, with the Big Apple, not surprisingly, landing at the top:

1. New York

2. Detroit

3. Los Angeles

4. Riverside / San Bernardino

5. Houston

6. Chicago

7. Miami

8. New Orleans

9. Atlanta

10. Memphis

Head over to CNNMoney to see the full list of the most (and least) stressed-out urban areas.
