This publication is a report of an examination of four aspects of South Dakota’s native population: (1) the location in 1960 of the natives of South Dakota; (2) the states from which people have come who now reside in South Dakota; (3) the amount of net gain or loss to South Dakota through interstate migration; and (4) the age structure of the native population born in South Dakota and residing in the different regions of the United States. It is important to point out that the movement of South Dakota’s population, either in or out, could have occurred at any time previous to 1960. Thus, undoubtedly, some of the migration may have occurred as early as 1889 or as recently as 1959.
