The descriptive research reported in this publication was part of a larger study carried out in South Dakota State University's Economics Department from 1978 through 1982 on rural industrial development in South Dakota. Factors influencing rural industrial development at the local level were reported in Goeken and Goeken and Dobbs. A Master of Science Research Paper in Sociology by Au Yeung drew and reported on some of the data contained in the present publication. The Sociology Research Paper also contained an examination of the effects of industrial development on local population changes in South Dakota.
