Shannon County Shrinking Rapidly

Shannon County’s population shrunk by 666 according to the most recent statistics. With a total of 1,202 people exiting the county and an influx of only 388 people, the county experienced a net loss of population due to migration. The majority of outbound migrants remained in South Dakota, specifically in Pennington (353) and Bennett Counties (105). Many moving out of state headed for Alaska (192), with a significant percentage ending up in Anchorage.

Those who do chose to relocate to Shannon County are most likely to be from Pennington County (81). The next largest county contributor isn’t even located within South Dakota borders. Denver County, Colorado held the second spot, contributing 36 migrants to Shannon County.

Other interesting Shannon County estimations include:

  • Movers from a different state: 130
  • Movers to a different state: 530
  • Movers from a different county in South Dakota: 208
  • Movers to a different county in South Dakota: 672
  • Movers from abroad: 10

 The above migration statistics were taken from the Census Flows Mapper and its most current data from the American Community Survey (2008-2012).
