  • There are plenty of opportunities for people who love fishing, hunting, hiking, and just enjoying the great outdoors.

With only 739,482 people living in a state that's 70,698.4 square miles, North Dakota has the distinction of being the 4th most sparsely populated states, which is one of the reasons the entire state rocks a small town vibe that residents love. The most densely populated cities are:

  • Grand Forks, ND
  • Minot, ND
  • West Fargo, ND

Getting a Feel for North Dakota

One of the things that makes North Dakota unusual is that the way the state's boundaries are laid out means that North Dakota is linked to two different physiographic regions. The eastern part of the state is in the Central Plains, while the Great Plains makes up the west. The eastern border is called the Red River Valley and represents the lowest point, 750 ft (229 m) in North Dakota's topography. North Dakota's highest point is found in the region called the Missouri Plateau Butte, which is home to the state's highest peak, White Butte 3,506 ft (1,069 m).

North Dakota's main waterways are the Missouri River and the Red River.

North Dakota's Economic Situation

North Dakota's economy has always been a concern, which is why the state's government takes a proactive stance and looks for ways they can keep every person working.

The North Dakota Department of Commerce Economic Development & Finance Division works hard to emphasize that businesses who move into North Dakota enjoy a lower operating cost than other states can provide. The division has created an assortment of services that are designed to attract factories, corporations, and large agricultural centers to the state. The services include:

  • Assistance with site location
  • Aid with workforce development
  • Assistance with international trade
  • Incentive packages
  • Business retention and expansion

The efforts to attract businesses to the state have paid off. While the U.S. unemployment rate is at 5.2%, North Dakota's dropped to 2.4%, and the state has enjoyed a job increase of 2.5%. The average annual salary for a North Dakota resident is about $30,000.

North Dakota's most successful industries are:

  • Agriculture
  • Oil
  • Tourism
  • Coal gasification
  • Renewable energy

Agriculture in North Dakota

Agriculture makes up the backbone of North Dakota's economy. Approximately 90% of the state's land is being used for agricultural purposes. The ag industry is responsible for employing nearly a quarter of North Dakota's population. In 2016, the state was home to 29,800 farms with the average farm coming in at 1,312 acres.

While most people associate North Dakota with cattle ranching, probably because the number of cattle in the state outnumber the human population 3-1, but a large portion of the state's agricultural resources are dedicated to crop farming. North Dakota is the nation's top producer of both durum and spring wheat.

Other crops that play an important role in North Dakota's economy include:

  • Navy beans
  • Pinto beans
  • Flaxseed
  • Canola

Beef cattle producers are the number one livestock producers in North Dakota and most raise their animals in a free-range manner. While famous for the beef cattle, North Dakota also has 75 dairy farms which produce about 40 million gallons of milk. There are two North Dakota milk processing plants.

Additional livestock raised in North Dakota include:

  • Farm/ranch raised bison
  • Turkeys
  • Sheep
  • Hogs
  • Bees for honey production

North Dakota farmers are famous for exploring how to use new technology to make their farms and ranches more energy efficient and eco-friendly.
