We built a list of terms related to moving houses and pulled tweets including these terms, using Twitter API. We used the location of users to identify the city, state and country and excluded areas outside of the US. We then used the language analysis tool TensiStrength to classify if a tweet was stressed or not.
The terms we used were:
We calculated the proportion of stressed tweets for every city and state to create an overall ranking, and reveal the top 10 most and least stressful. We omitted Wyoming from the “most stressful city in each state” results as no city had enough data to extrapolate.
The data was collected in July/August 2021.
