South Dakota Wage Study

How much do you really earn?

After taxes, how much do you take home? How much can you buy with your hard earned wages? Does it matter where you work and live?
The Governor’s Office of Economic Development conducted a wage study to answer these questions and assessed purchasing power across the nation. We looked at median wages by occupation and then analyzed the impacts of taxation and cost of living. The verdict? Location matters.
