Flush with oil and gas money, North Dakota led the nation in Gallup’s Job Creation Index last year. Of course, with energy prices tanking, it may not retain the top spot for long.

The index is derived from full- and part-time workers’ reports of whether their employer is hiring and expanding the size of its workforce, not making changes or letting people go and reducing its workforce.

The greater the difference between the two, the higher the score. For example, in North Dakota in 2014, 48% of workers  said their employer was hiring and 12% said their employer was letting workers go, resulting in a +36 Job Creation Index score.
