The Biggest Worry in North Dakota
What gives North Dakotans more anxiety than anything else?
Everyone everywhere worries about something. Google trends have shown what every state in the country worries the most about.

It's no secret that North Dakota enjoys its adult beverages. In fact, last year, two cities in North Dakota were among the 10 drunkest cities in the U.S. Our neighbors to the east in Minnesota also have anxiety about alcoholism. While many states, including North Dakota and Minnesota, have serious topics they're consistently worried about, some others are more peculiar.
For instance, Nebraska's biggest worry is 'forklifts.' Ohio is worried about 'heights.' Despite the wide open area in the large state of Texas, their biggest worries are 'confined spaces.' To view the entire map, you can see what every state worries about the most here.
