Stressed out cities

What is the most stressed out city? Survey says, Tacoma is the most stressed out-and Albany-Schenectady-Troy the least. My family has lived near both areas, and I can report that Tacoma is pretty depressing-though I don't remember Albany being any sort of utopia (the population has been declining in that area of upstate New York). But the author might have acknowledged that the suicide rate is probably exaggerated by the sunless climate.

Update: My girlfriend points out that noting Las Vegas has a high divorce rate is kind of stupid. Check Bestplaces.net, "number of Starbucks" is a crucial "general" metric on the city comparison feature!
