The PIA Western Alliance states of Oregon, Washington and California rank 2, 3 and 5 respectively. Oregon has 16,000 searches per month for the word depersonalization.
Washington ranks fourth and in the last year had 28,800 searches for that same word. Number-five California’s sheer size gives it a much higher total for the keyword, depersonalization.

The report’s authors said the numbers highlight the need for employers — and society in general — to recognize burnout and address it before it becomes a greater problem.
“This study underscores the importance of addressing burnout as a public health concern. Prioritizing self-care is extremely important. Allocating time in your schedule for activities that bring you relaxation is integral to combatting burnout,” the report notes. “Whether it’s a hobby, exercise, or simply unwinding with a good book, taking time for yourself is crucial. Sometimes, simply sharing your feelings and concerns can provide valuable relief and guidance in overcoming burnout”
