South Dakota

Introduction & Summary

Understanding Growth and Change
Among the Major Components of Employment:

Wage and Salary Employment,
Nonfarm Proprietors' Employment
and Farm Proprietors' Employment

Unless there is a sound understanding of the make-up of local employment, and an awareness of how each of the components have grown or declined in relative importance over time, one can not gauge or appreciate the underlying character or complexion of growth and change of the local economy. This SD-REAP module is for tracking and analyzing the changing composition of employment for the regions, MSAs, and 66 South Dakota counties.
