Millennials Are Stressed Out

Posted On February 13, 2013

According to a survey for the American Psychological Association (APA) by Harris Interactive, Millennials are the most stressed out generation.  A majority of Millennial adults report symptoms like difficulty sleeping that are usually related to stress. 40% report their stress has shot up significantly in the last year, compared with a third or less of older generations.

Millennial unemployment is above 13% and over half of Millennial college graduates are in jobs that do not require a degree, which could account for some of the stress. Not surprisingly, Millennials are most stressed out by work (76%) and money (73%).

Close to 20% of Millennials report feeling depression and 12% have been diagnosed with anxiety problems, both higher figures than other generations. On an APA stress scale of 1-to-10 Millennials on average rate themselves at 5.4. The national average is 4.9; 3.6 is considered healthy.
