The researchers also mentioned that Georgia is among one of the most stressed states in the United States. This says a lot about the common health-related ailments Atlanta residents suffer from:
- Insomnia Statistics: Insomnia facts and figures for the Atlanta area shows that one out of four residents have sleeping disturbances.
- Depression Statistics: Depression percentages reveal that mood disorders in the city have a 3-7% prevalence. People suffer either from Major Depressive Episodes or other mood disorders such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
- Fibromyalgia Statistics: Fibromyalgia figures, for Atlanta, shows that 3-6% of the population also suffer from this common chronic pain illness. Chronic pain patients also develop psychological symptoms such as depression and anxiety, in addition to their physical condition.
