It what is probably the most simple analysis we run each year, we ranked every place in South Dakota from biggest to smallest. The biggest city this year? That would be Sioux Falls.

The smallest? Alcester, although there are places smaller than 1,000 people not listed here, so keep that in mind as we take a look at the top ten.
