On this map we can see what percentage of each country’s population experiences stress during a lot of the day on an average day. A lot of people think that more developed and richer societies are much more stressful than less developed societies. This is something I believed to be true as well, but as we can see, there is no clear relation to that.
Asia is a mixed bag, when it comes to stress. It is home the most and least stressful countries in the world. The six least stressful countries in the world are all in Asia. Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan (12%), Kyrgyzstan, Indonesia (13%), Mongolia (14%) and Russia (19%) are the least stressful countries in Asia and the world.
On the other end of the ranking, Asia is also well represented. Afghanistan, Lebanon (74%) and Turkey (64%) are by far the most stressful countries in the world. There are three more Asian countries in the global top 10. Jordan ranks 5th (58%), China 8th (55%) and Iraq 9th (53%).
The data comes from the Gallup Global Emotions Report. This report is based on nationally representative, probability-based samples among the adult population, ages 15 and older. The indexes are calculated from surveys in 122 countries and areas in 2021 and early 2022.
