Men Outpacing Women In SD

Since 2009, males have been the majority in South Dakota and they have been growing faster than females in recent years, according to recently updated federal data

In 2000, women and girls outnumbered men and boys by 5,728 -- 380,286 females compared to 374,558 males. By 2014 that dynamic had reversed, with males outnumbering females by 5,451 -- 429,313 males compared to 423,862 females. 

In 2009, males overtook females in the state, with 403,869 males compared to 403,198 females. Since then, males have made larger gains than females, growing 5.4 percent between 2010 and 2014 compared to 4.2 percent growth for the female population. Overall, South Dakota's population grew 4.8 percent during that time.
