According to the 2014 edition of the survey, "the most commonly reported sources of stress include money (64 percent report that this is a very or somewhat significant source of stress), work (60 percent), the economy (49 percent), family responsibilities (47 percent) and personal health concerns (46 percent)".
If all the potential stressors were analyzed for all Americans (regardless of whether they were relevant to them or not), the report is correct in stating that the results represent "the most commonly reported sources of stress". If, however, the potential stressors were analyzed for only the Americans they were relevant to (i.e. Work for Americans that are working or Health concerns for Americans with health concerns) then the results represent the things that cause the most stress when experienced. If - as it appears to be the case in the APA report - the source of stress metrics were analyzed for a mix of All respondents and All qualifying respondents, a comparison across the metrics is meaningless.
