PHOENIX -- Aside from the intense summer heat that defines Arizona, stress seems to be another issue surrounding the state.

According to the real estate website Movoto, Arizona ranked as the 10th-most stressed out state in America.

The criteria used to measure stress was the percentage of population with commutes longer than 20 minutes, unemployment and the amount of hours worked.

Arizonans, according to the survey, work an average of 22 hours per week and about 11 percent of the population commutes longer than 20 minutes.

"Arizona is basically a slightly less stressed version of North Carolina. The commutes are worse, but all the desert gives you a lot of space to breathe."

The states more stressed than Arizona were Florida, Georgia, New Jersey, California, Nevada, Illinois, New York, Maryland and North Carolina.
