BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) Oil-rich North Dakota leads the nation in a survey of the emotional, physical and mental well-being of its residents, followed closely by its sister state South Dakota, according to a national survey.

North Dakota topped the survey with an overall score of 70.4 out of a possible 100. South Dakota scored 70 for the No. 2 spot.
