The general purposes of this study were two-fold:
(1) to explore how the extent and type of rural industrialization being experienced in South Dakota differs among types of communities and local labor sheds; and
(2) to develop policy and planning recommendations that can be used by rural industrial development entities at the community, district, and state levels in South Dakota.
The underlying assumption of this study was that the degree and type of industrialization is directly related to community and labor shed characteristics . These characteristics, or "locational inducement factors," can be broken down into several categories.
