Wednesday, April 05, 2017
For young adults looking for opportunity, there’s apparently no better place than North Dakota. A wave of young people relocating to the state has put North Dakota at the top of a list of best states for young adults to live in 2017.
U.S. News released a list Tuesday of the top 10 states millennials are moving to, and echoing its number one ranking as the best state for economic growth, North Dakota was also named the best place for young adults. The state saw a 5.08 percent growth in the number of residents age 25 to 29 between 2012 and 2015, compared to the national average growth rate of 1.61 percent.
