South Dakota Employment Data
Located in the upper Midwest region of the U.S., the Coyote State’s economy is known for cattle and sheep ranches, corn and wheat, mining, food processing, and computer manufacturing. South Dakota’s job market is accelerating, although slowed by the reversal of oil fortunes to the north. Some of the lowest costs of doing business in the nation continues to drive the economy. A strong agriculture industry is an asset, but the high dependence risks exposure to fluctuating commodity prices.
