Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - North Dakota has made yet another top ten list. This time the Peace Garden state comes in at number one.

An online publication recently ranked North Dakota as the number one state for adults ages 18-to-24.

MoneyRates.com compared key factors like unemployment rate, nightlife, tuition prices and housing affordability.

The site says North Dakota earned its mark because of its strong economic conditions and 3.3 percent unemployment right for 20-to-24-year-olds.

NDSU officials say many students that graduate like to stay close to home.

Jill Wilkey, NDSU Career Services Director: “Family is very important to young people today. So they would like to stay in that proximity where they can stay in contact with their family. So the upper midwest is going to be very attractive to many of the graduates we have at NDSU.”

South Dakota, Iowa, Montana and Nebraska round out the top 5.
