A new report from Wallet Hub shows that North Dakota is the No. 1 state to raise a family.

The study looked at factors including family salary by state, cost of living, divorce rates, areas where there are lots of families with kids and much more.

North Dakota had the fifth highest median family salary in the US (adjusted for the cost of living). North Dakota also ranked in the top five for affordable housing, the lowest percent of families living below poverty level and lowest divorce rate.

When looking at all the factors in total, North Dakota is the best state to raise a family.

Previously we've reported on the great park system in Bismarck as well along with the fact that the Capitol city is one of the most 'playful cities.'
