|North Dakota's Oil and Gas Economy is a report that melds together oil and gas production statistics, labor market information, and other related economic indicators to provide a current, quick-and-easy overview of the state's oil and gas economy. Due to the regional influence of the oil and gas economy, this report focuses on three main geographic groupings: (1) core oil and gas producing counties; (2) balance of oil and gas producing counties; and (3) non oil and gas producing counties. These groupings highlight the contrast in the direct impact of oil and gas activity. Ten years of historical data have been added for most data elements so visual trends can be spotted. This report is updated monthly with the latest data, generally on the first working Wednesday of the month, though exceptions may occur. Keep in mind, data are current as of the report's scheduled monthly update. Since data sources release their information at different times throughout a month or year, newer data may become available after an update but before the next scheduled update. The report will reflect the newer data in the next scheduled update. Some data cannot be released due to reliability, availability, or confidentiality restrictions.
