EDISON - Dealing with stress is never easy, but living in two New Jersey cities apparently won’t help.

Jersey City has been ranked the fifth most stressed out city in the country while Newark is ranked at number 8, according to a report from real estate blog Movoto.

The real estate blog determined its rankings by looking at seven factors: commute time, unemployment, cost of living, crime per 100,000 residents, hours worked, population density and percentage of income spent on rent. The blog says it obtained its data from the U.S. Census’ American Community Survey for 2008-2012 and the FBI. 

Washington D.C. topped the list, while New York City, Miami and San Francisco rounded out the top five.
