South Dakota suddenly swells
South Dakota is growing faster than the nation for the first time in more than half a century.
Census reports estimate the state's population grew by 2.4 percent from 2010 to 2012, compared to a 1.7 percent national growth rate.
Every decade since at least 1940, South Dakota has grown more slowly than the nation as a whole.
