Despite our wonky winters, Wisconsin ranks in the top 10 for least stressed states.

According to a new study by WalletHub, our state ranked 43rd in the most stressed category.

States that weren't so lucky? Louisiana came in first place for being the most stressed, ranking in the top five for three of the five categories of stress: work related, money related, and health and safety related.

While some statistics weren't surprising, such as California being ranked among the least affordable housing, other points stood out, such as Alaska ranking No. 1 for most average hours worked per week.
