Sixty-nine percent of Americans say the nation’s future causes them stress, a survey by the American Psychological Association reveals.

The number marks a significant increase, over last year’s survey, which had found 62 percent stressed over the future of the U.S.

Here are the highlights from organization’s Stress in America survey:

  • 62 percent said the current political climate is a significant source of stress.
  • 61 percent disagreed that the US is on a path to being stronger than ever.
  • 24 percent said discrimination was a significant source of stress.
  • 75 percent of those 18-21 years old said mass shootings are a significant source of stress.

“Current events are clearly stressful for everyone in the country, but young people are really feeling the impact of issues in the news, particularly those issues that may feel beyond their control,” said Arthur Evans Jr., APA’s chief executive officer.

The survey, conducted by The Harris Poll during July and August, questioned 3,458 adults and 300 15-17-year-olds.
