While one in three Americans has past-due debt that has been turned over to a collection agency, the state of North Dakota fared best.

In fact, the Dakotas and Minnesota topped the nationwide list: 19.2%. Nevada: 47%.

Southern states did the worst.

The Urban Institute reports that 35% of Americans with a credit file have debt in collection right now.

Despite the lowest rate in the country, credit counselors say North Dakotans still should be looking at their bottom line.
