Sioux Falls population jumps to 162,300

Posted: Updated:


3,500 people moved to Sioux Falls in 2013, pushing the city's population estimate to 162,300.

The estimate comes after the city's year-end evaluation of growth. It's a 3,500-person increase from last year and a 2.2 percent annual increase.

The population of Sioux Falls has grown by almost 28,000 people during the last ten years and has shown a 1.64 percent average annual increase during that same period.

"Sioux Falls continues to see this steady, efficient growth because of many factors including diverse employment opportunities, fiscally sound government, strong local economy, a safe and secure place to raise children, and support for quality of life advances," says Jeffrey Schmitt, Chief Planning and Zoning Official.
