CINCINNATI (WKRC) - Those in the Tri-State who feel a little stressed may have some good reasons, at least according to a new study.

A new report said residents of Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio are not getting enough sleep, many only have fair or poor health and a large number are not making enough money.

Personal-finance website WalletHub said in a news release that residents of the Bluegrass State are No. 9 in its report on 2018’s Most and Least Stressed States. Indiana is ranked 17th and Ohio is 19th. The report compared 50 states and the District of Columbia across 38 key metrics.

Louisiana is the most stressed out. New Mexico is second and West Virginia is the third most stressed state.

With a rating of 1 being the most stressed and 25 as the average, Kentucky was third in share of adults getting adequate sleep (Ohio was No. 4); fifth in percentage of adults in fair and poor health; and tied for fourth in percentage of the population living below the poverty line.

Minnesota was the least stressed state, followed by North Dakota and Utah.
