Millennials Face Higher Stress Levels Than Their Elders

America's young adults may have significantly higher stress rates than old adults, says a new study from researchers at the American Psychological Association. The group collected data as part of their annual "Stress in America" poll.

For the poll they surveyed over 2,000 adults age 18 and older about their average stress levels. They found that those in the 18-33 age group reported an average of 5.4 out of 10 on stress surveys. This is compared to a national average of 4.9.
