Utah Provides Fall River County with Largest Group of In-Migrants

Of the estimated 584 migrants to Fall River County, the largest group hailed from Iron County, Utah. Of the 74 total in-migrants from Utah, 60 came from Iron County. Though Utah is only third as far as statewide contributions to Fall River’s population, Iron County was the mostly likely origination county for a new resident, beating out Custer (54), Pennington (45), Lawrence (23) and Lincoln (22) counties.

Overall, Fall River County’s population grew, despite losing 383 people to other parts of the state and the country. In-migrants totaled 584 people, most of whom were originally from South Dakota (202) or neighboring states such as Nebraska (90), Colorado (54), and Wyoming (53).

Most people leaving Fall River County set their sights on other South Dakota counties (194) or Nebraska (118). Pennington County was the largest draw, enticing 101 residents to move. Box Butte County, Nebraska, with Alliance as its seat, was the second most popular destination for out-migrants from Fall River.

Other interesting Fall River County estimations include:

  • Movers from a different state: 382
  • Movers to a different state: 189
  • Movers from a different county in South Dakota: 202
