MoneyRates.com announced today that North Dakota ranks #1 among all states in the best states for young adults. The study focuses on where 20-24 year olds have the best shot at thriving in today's economy. The study analyzed nine key lifestyle factors in all 50 states including career opportunities, education costs, car insurance rates, housing, nightlife, and overall healthfulness.
"With the lowest unemployment rate in the country, rising incomes, a business climate that enables commerce to thrive and great career opportunities for young people it's not surprising that the rest of the nation is taking notice of what we have to offer in North Dakota," Gov. Jack Dalrymple said.
The North Dakota Department of Commerce works to improve the quality of life for North Dakota citizens by leading efforts to attract, retain and expand wealth. Commerce serves businesses and communities statewide through committed people and partners who offer valuable programs and dynamic services.
