The U.S. economy continues to pound on young adults with joblessness and student debt. The average national unemployment for young adults aged 20-24 was 13.5 percent in July 2012, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That means about 2 million young people are without jobs. But, there are some states that offer economic shelter, cheap education and a youth-friendly environment, according to a study from MoneyRates.com. MoneyRates, a website that helps users find competitive bank rates, released a list of the top 10 best states for young people. The rankings are based on nine key factors, some of which include everything from unemployment and housing costs to the amount of youthful retailers and health clubs in the state.
