LAS VEGAS, NV. (CNN) -- A new study has revealed that losing one's phone is almost as stressful as a terrorist attack. 

The study asked 2,000 people to rate how stressful they found key events in their lives. The number one stressful thing was losing a spouse or significant other. 

However, the threat of a terror attack came in at No. 13 on the list followed closely by losing a smartphone, well below planning a wedding or moving. 

The study also reported that women found more things stressful than did men who were surveyed.
