Rapid City Residents Number Over 75,000

The Rapid City Year End 2017 Population Estimate Report shows that the city’s population has finally surpassed 75,000 people, reports the Rapid City Journal. The report says that at the end of 2012, Rapid City’s population was 75,488, an increase of 2.3 percent since it was last estimated in 2016.

Rapid City’s Planning Commission approved the report today, which also demonstrated an increase in the number of total households in Rapid City by 561 in 2017. The Commission prepares a population estimate for Rapid City annually based on building permits approved, housing demolitions, and Census 2010 data for Rapid City and Rapid Valley.
