A Pew Charitable Trust survey suggests North Dakota has been the primary beneficiary of the second-longest economic economic expansion in U.S. history.

In fact, “growth has been strongest in North Dakota and a group of mostly Western states and weakest in Connecticut, as measured by the rate of change in each state’s total personal income since the start of the Great Recession,” Pew reports. “In the first half of 2018, all but a couple of states shared in widespread gains.”

Personal income in the western states has grown, lead by North Dakota, according to Pew.

“Eight states’ growth since the start of recession beat the 20-year U.S. rate as of the second quarter of 2018, and nearly all were in the West. North Dakota once again led; the sum of its residents’ personal income has increased the equivalent of 3.3 percent a year. Connecticut and four other states recorded the weakest recovery, with growth rates at or below the equivalent of 1 percent a year,” the survey notes.
