The world’s most stressful cities

Most stressful cities in the world: According to a new study conducted by UK-based drycleaning and laundry service Zipjet. three African countries were on the list of most stressful countries in the world. The three African countries on the list are, Lagos, Cairo and Dakar. Lagos was ranked third in a research that revealed the world’s most and least stressful cities of 2017. Cairo and Dakar were two other African cities on the most stressful cities list, while there was no African representation on the least stressful cities

In assigning the ranking, some of the factors considered were traffic levels, infrastructure, pollution levels, finance, citizens’ wellbeing, public transport, percentage of green spaces, financial status of citizens including debt levels, physical and mental health, and the hours of sunlight the city gets per year.
