The central objective of this thesis is to study the relationship between net out-migration and changes in selected characteristics of the population of South Dakota, during the decade from 1950 to 1960. This basic objective can be refined into three minor objectives.

1) To analyze the relationship, if any, between net out-migration rates and changes in selected vital rates of South Dakota's population, by county, for the decade 1950 to 1960.

2) To analyze the relationship, if any, between net out-migration rates and changes in selected demographic characteristics of South Dakota’s population, by county, for the decade 1950 to 1960.

3) To analyze the relationship, if any, between net out-migration rates and changes in selected socioeconomic characteristics of South Dakota's population, by county, for the decade 1950 to 1960.
