In this week's newsletter, you will learn about a new text notification system for Rapid City and Pennington County and legislation concerning the expansion of the Black Hills National Cemetery. You will also read about the naming of Robbinsdale Park and livestock feed assistance for landowners.
The South Dakota Dashboard is an online community information service that provides people with reliable, up-to-date trend data on geographic South Dakota.
This data covers statewide community indicators from income, to diabetes, to youth, and can be broken down by all counties and major towns in South Dakota, as well as sorted by age, race, or gender.
With each of the major topic areas, we also provide an "Overview" section that includes recent data-related news stories and posts that we have aggregated to provide context to the numbers.
The South Dakota Dashboard is a project of the Black Hills Knowledge Network.
