North Dakota Cities Top in Small Town List

Posted: Updated:

The Milken Institute's top performing cities list is out, and North Dakota is at the top of the best small cities.

This year Bismarck and Fargo rank in the top five small cities with Fargo in third and Bismarck in fourth. The study ranks cities on job growth as well as energy and technology development.

"The metros in North Dakota have certainly benefited from the energy industry. In the case of Bismarck it's contributed to the stability of the public sector employment where other state capitols have had significant cuts in public sector employment and also as a regional hub for retail, health care and so on," says Minoli Ratnatunga, Milken Institute Economist.

The study also found hospitals are among the cities largest employers, and the health care added hundreds of jobs since 2007.
