Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Bragging rights are in store for the people who run the state of North Dakota.

The annual 24/7 Wall Street study has named North Dakota the best run state in the nation.

The study determines how well states are run by looking at data on financial health, standard of living and government services.

Quality of life was also considered. Poverty, income, unemployment, high school graduation, crime and foreclosure rates were factored in.

Wyoming, Nebraska, Utah and Iowa round out the top five.
