Census Data Center

Welcome to the SDSU Census Data Center!

The Center operates as a cooperative venture between the US Census Bureau and South Dakota State University.

What we do

The Center assists people in successfully accessing census data for effective decision-making and sometimes just plain curiosity. We also take on special projects for organizations that have special data needs. We develop projects and seek additional funding to provide more and better data to the citizens and communities of South Dakota. Finally, we provide training to help people more effectively use the census data and presentations about our findings using the data. Our work is informed by a state-wide advisory committee.

We also publish newsletter. If you are not already signed up, please contact Joni Mueller. You will get our latest findings and find out about events and upcoming activities.
