Population Change in South Dakota Small Towns and Cities.
Field, Donald R.; Dimit, Robert M.
In this publication, the authors review the historical development of South Dakota communities in the perspective of community change as it occurred in the United States resulting from several important societal factors during the period from 1940-1960. The authors emphasize that, while societal influences continue to operate, forcing adjustment at the local level, additional factors are stimulating further adjustment. Communities continue to grow and decline, depending upon how they are able to adjust to factors such as commercialization in agriculture, diminishing local control, and rural migration. Tables are appended which include population data for each incorporated place in South Dakota. (Author/LS)
