North Dakota: More Jobs and Better-Paying Jobs

MEDIAN HOUSEHOLD INCOME

North Dakota experienced an oil boom beginning in the mid–2000s. Thanks to a robust economy tied to energy development, median household income in North Dakota rose 9 percent between 2005 and 2010, trailing only the District of Columbia. Figures have been adjusted for inflation.
