Out of 170 places in New York State that were examined, with 1 being the most stressed and 170 being the least, Colonie came in at 167.
Zippia took a look at six main elements of each municipality in order to determine its level of stress: percentage of population with a long commute (over 30 minutes), unemployment rate, hours worked, population density, percentage of income spent on rent, and percentage of population without health insurance.
Information was used from the US Census’ American Community Survey for 2010 to 2014.
For Colonie, 30% of residents were rated as having a high rent, 16.2% have a long commute, and only 4.8% are uninsured.
