Rapid City Ranked Midwest’s Fastest Growing Metro Area

(Rapid City, SD) — The U.S. Census Bureau is ranking Rapid City as the Midwest’s fastest-growing metro area. The federal agency says Rapid City’s population grew nearly two percent between 2020 and 2021, triple the national average. Elevate Rapid City CEO Tom Johnson says several factors have contributed to the population growth, including the fact that South Dakota didn’t shut down during the pandemic. Johnson says people are discovering the outdoor activities available in the Black Hills, leading about a thousand people to move to the city each year.
