The US Census Bureau says North Dakota was the only state to see its average age getting younger over the past 10 years.
The Bureau says the median age in North Dakota in 2018 was 35. It was 37 in 2010. North Dakota remains the fourth youngest state, behind Utah, Alaska and Texas.
"This reflects the fact that people see opportunity here," said Gov. Doug Burgum. "Whether that's a place to raise a family, a place to have a great career, a place to get an education, it reflects well on our state."
Burgum said it bodes well for the state in the long run.
