DENVER – Colorado is a really good place for millennials to live in, according to new WalletHub study released earlier this week.

In WalletHub’s 2018’s Best & Worst States for Millennials, Colorado landed among the Top 10 best states – coming in ninth.

WalletHub compared 50 states and the District of Columbia to determine where millennials – the generation born between 1981 and 1996 – have thrived and struggled.

The District of Columbia earned the No. 1 spot for Best “state” while the state of New Mexico came in dead last.

North Dakota, Minnesota, Massachusetts and Iowa took the remaining four “best” state spots.

South Dakota came in at No. 10.

A total of 30 key metrics were used to rank each state, from share of millennials to millennial unemployment rate to millennial voter-turnout rate.
