Who Is the Most Stressed Out?

People aged 45 to 54 are most likely to be feeling stressed out and depressed, according to a government survey. When people aged 18 or older are asked how often during the past 30 days they have been feeling mental distress, fully 12.3 percent of 45-to-54-year-olds say they have felt mentally fragile on at least 14 of the past 30 days. Among all adults, the percentage is 10.6 percent. Least stressed are people aged 65 or older, with 6.6 percent feeling frequent mental distress.
