Those Moving From Custer County Stay in the Area

Though Custer County had a total of 511 new residents, its estimated total population count was not heavily impacted  thanks to an out-migration of 535 people.

Of new residents, over half were previously living in the state. Pennington (94) Grant (30) Meade (29) and Charles Mix (28) counties comprised the majority of in-state sources. Nebraska (76) and Colorado (41) were the largest interstate providers of new residents.

More than three quarters of the people leaving Custer County didn’t leave the state. In fact, nearly half only ventured to a neighboring county. Pennington (114), Lawrence (113), and Fall River (54) were the most popular relocation destinations.

Other interesting Custer County estimations include:

  • Movers from a different state: 235
  • Movers to a different state: 105
  • Movers from a different county in South Dakota: 276
  • Movers to a different county in South Dakota: 430
  • Movers from abroad: 4

 The above migration statistics were taken from the Census Flows Mapper and its most current data from the American Community Survey (2008-2012).
