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:
