South Dakota Employment Information


South Dakota Overview


South Dakota is a scenic wonder full of prairies, grasslands and farmlands. The South Dakota job market and economy came through the recession in good shape thanks to the state’s stable agriculture business. While conditions vary by community, the Mount Rushmore State’s 448,000 workers are expected to see gradual job gains in 2012 and beyond.

With scenic wonders that include the Black Hills, the Badlands and Mount Rushmore, South Dakota attracts millions of visitors annually, making tourism the second-largest industry in the state behind agriculture. South Dakota is also focused on creating jobs in advanced manufacturing, bioscience, financial services, professional/business services and renewable energy.

The most jobs in South Dakota are provided by the trade, transportation and utilities; government; and education/health services sectors. Several industries have reported job gains in 2012, including professional/business services; education/health services; trade, transportation and utilities; and manufacturing.
