Financial website "Wallet Hub" has released its annual list of best places to live for millennials. Minnesota is ranked high on the list at #3. North Dakota came in at #2. And the top spot #1 goes to -- not technically a state...the nation's capital, Washington D.C.!
According to the study, Washington D.C. is the best place for millennials to live. Millennials make up about 35 percent of D.C.'s workforce. Key indicators of living standards like average monthly earnings for millennials and the millennial unemployment rate were looked at for the study.
Washington DC millennials say that the abundance of people their age is also a big attraction. Meanwhile the share of young adults living with their parents is the highest in 75 years. A Pew Research Center study shows 33 percent of 25 to 29 year olds lived with their parents or grandparents in 2016. That's almost three times as many as in 1970.
