Travel to work and self-reported stress: findings from a workplace survey in south west Sydney, Australia
A study (Rissel et al., 2014) conducted in southwest Sydney, Australia found that those who commuted to work by car were more likely to report higher levels of stress than those who used other means of transportation. The study surveyed employees at various workplaces in the area and asked them about their commute, stress levels, and other factors. The results showed that those who drove to work were more likely to report higher levels of stress than those who used other means of transportation. This was especially true for those who had long commute times. The study also found that those who used public transportation or walked to work were less likely to report high levels of stress. These findings suggest that commuting by car can be a significant source of stress for many people. The study highlights the importance of considering stress when planning for transportation and provides valuable information for those who commute to work by car.
