ot a new job in another state? Or just simply planning to try a different state’s character? North Dakota welcomes new residents; people are friendly here, always helping new comers to settle. Before taking the final decision, a few information will help get more familiar with this state’s unique characteristics.

Located in northern America, North Dakota is one the few American states to have Canada as a neighbor. The state’s other neighbors include Minnesota, South Dakota and Montana. North Dakota has a small population of 640 000 residents. The low number reveals the fact that communities live often in rural rather than urban areas. In fact, only a tenth of the entire surface of North Dakota is populated, the rest of it being covered of land. Nature is abundant here and tranquil villages and small towns offer their inhabitants peaceful relaxing lives.

Because of the misunderstandings between the two sister states, when accepted in the Union, they had the ceremony on the same day. One state becoming part of the Union before the other sister state does, would led to serious fights between the two of them. Since then, North Dakota tried quite a few times to change its name into Dakota state, without the North in front of it, but all attempts failed.

North Dakota has Bismarck as its state capital.

North Dakota concentrates one of America’s largest numbers of Native Americans. People live isolated and tradition is well kept in the area. Learning seems to be important for North Dakotans, since they have one of America’s best educational systems, especially when it comes to primary and secondary schools.

Statistics show that the number of new coming residents is lower than the number of those who leave North Dakota. The reason why people leave is mainly the lack of jobs for specialized college graduated people. Agriculture is by far the major activity in this state. Sunflower growth exceeds any other state’s production.

Besides agriculture, which contributes significantly to the country’s food supply, mining comes second to increase the state’s incomes. Petroleum, lignite and natural gas are just a few examples of natural resources present in the area.

Climate changes extremely during the year, summers being awfully hot, while winters being very cold.

This agriculture based economy seems to cause North Dakota a great loss of residents every year. The issue of population decrease was nationally discussed several times.

People from across the country are flocking to North Dakota to seek work, but as Samuel Hicks found, a surplus of jobs doesn’t mean there’s any where to live. He’s camping out behind his workplace in the wind and rain, earning 000 a year more than he did in Iowa.

    This is a stupid question the Dakotas and Minnesota are states in the US and the provinces are in Canada

  2. old lady says:

    North and South Dakota and Minnesota are American states. They are in the USA, not in Canada. The ten provinces and three territories of Canada have nothing to do with the Dakotas or Minnesota.

  3. Chris I says:

    I suggest you call someone in your class & get the proper question. Those are American States and do not contain provinces so the question makes no sense.
