North Dakota has been ranked first in the nation on its economic performance and the talent in its pipeline by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation.
In addition, the state was ranked sixth in overall business climate, according to the foundation’s sixth annual “Enterprising States: States Innovate” study released Tuesday.
The study highlights the states best poised for the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) focused economy.
North Dakota is at the top in STEM job growth but is still low in the actual number of STEM jobs per capita, according to the study.
