For at least the last decade, population in the Black Hills region has been growing faster than in South Dakota as a whole, according to recent U.S. Census data. South Dakota's statewide population grew steadily at about 1 percent annually between 2003 and 2010, while the population in the Black Hills region stayed ahead of that curve, logging annual increases between 1.06 percent and 1.52 percent. The only period when growth rates slipped was from 2004 to 2005, when population in the state and the region increased by just 0.66 percent.
