According to a new study by CNN, Lagos ranks third on the list of most stressful cities in the world.

A new study has revealed the world’s most and least stressful cities of 2017, based on factors including traffic levels, 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.
Of the 150 cities ranked, four out of the top ten most stress-free cities are in Germany. The southern city of Stuttgart comes out on top, with Hanover in third place, Munich in fifth place and Hamburg in joint ninth place with Graz, Austria. The tiny yet wealthy country of Luxembourg, home to fewer than 600,000 people, has the second-lowest stress levels.
The study, by UK-based dry-cleaning and laundry service Zipjet, was conducted by studying 500 locations based on data relating to 17 categories covering infrastructure, pollution levels, finance and citizens’ wellbeing. This determined a ranking of 150 cities with available data on all factors relating to the study. The city ranked the most stressful overall is Baghdad — with a total score of 10 compared with Stuttgart’s one.
