According to a release from the office of Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D., Gallup's recently completed Job Creation Index has ranked North Dakota as the top job market in the country for the first half of 2011.

North Dakota has ranked in the Top 10 for more than, from January 2008 to June 2011.

The findings are based on almost 100,000 interviews with employed adults during the first half of 2011 and conducted as part of Gallup's Daily Tracking Poll. Interviewees were asked whether their companies are hiring workers and expanding the size of their labor forces, not changing the size of their workforces or laying off workers and reducing their workforces. The results are the net difference between the percentage reporting an expansion and the percentage reporting a reduction in their workforces.

Another ranking, the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index, ranks North Dakota second in overall health wellness. These state-level rankings are meant to provide a preliminary reading on the well-being of U.S. states in anticipation of the complete 2011 rankings, to be released early next year.
