NH ranked 6th-worst state for millennials to live in


Chances are, millennials aren't huge fans of the Granite State, at least according to one study.

MoneyRates.com released a ranking of the “Best States for Young People” Tuesday. N.H. was ranked the 6th worst.

N.H. was dinged for its nation-high yearly cost of attending a 4-year public college or university - $15,160 - which is nearly $6,000 more expensive than the national average $9,318. Over four years, that makes bills for students getting a degree from a four-year public school in N.H. roughly $24,000 steeper than the average student's attending a public school elsewhere in the U.S.

The best state for young people, according to MoneyRates.com's ranking? North Dakota. Interesting...

The criteria for the rankings included:

- Unemployment rates among young adults

- Percent of state population composed of young adults

- In-state cost of 4-year public colleges

- Availability and cost of rentals

- Number of bars, pubs and nightclubs per 1,000 young adults

- Number of fitness clubs per 1,000 young adults
