How Stressed Are Americans During COVID-19?

    COVID-19 cases are surging across the country.

    And while it may not feel like it, things are worse now than ever before. In partnership with Remedy Reviews, Stacker produced 10 statistics that show how stressed Americans are during COVID-19 to see how people are faring during this time.

    Methodology

    Remedy Reviews consulted the U.S. Census’ Household Pulse Survey to determine the states with the most anxious residents during COVID-19. The survey, conducted for a total of 249 million Americans, determined how many people in each state had exhibited symptoms of anxiety and/or had been unable to control their worrying during the week in which the survey was conducted. In this visualization, Remedy Reviews used the 17th iteration of the survey, which was conducted from October 14 to October 26; data were released on November 4.
