Results of the survey say the average stress level of adults in 2012 was 4.9 on a 10-point scale, where one means “little or no stress” and 10 means “a great deal of stress.”
The survey found that the stress level for Millennials, adults aged 18-33, was 5.4 with 39 percent saying their stress increased during the past year and 52 percent saying that it has kept them up at night. The top two causes of their stress are work and money.READ MORE: Funeral Services For Fallen Philadelphia Firefighter Lt. Sean Williamson Begin Sunday Evening
