Which are the most stressed-out countries? We all complain about being stressed, but there are countries that are more stressed than others.

A survey conducted by Bloomberg took in account 74 countries worldwide and ranked them according to several factors.

The variables considered in this survey were homicide rates, GDP per capita (adjusted for purchasing-power parity), income inequality, corruption perception, unemployment, urban air pollution and life expectancy.

The Czech Republic finds itself at the 49th position of this list, which is topped by Nigeria as the most stressed-out country. The country that has the least stress is Norway.

The first positions are occupied especially by third world or about-to-develop countries while European countries show especially at the end of the list.
