SIOUX FALLS, S.D. -- South Dakota's economic renaissance has gone largely unnoticed, eclipsed by things like the state's strong opposition to same-sex marriage, its raucous debates over abortion and the stroke suffered by one of its senators, Tim Johnson, that could tip control of the Senate back to the Republicans. But in the 1990s, its long-stagnant population began to grow, especially here and in Rapid City, and its economy began to diversify. Its lack of personal and corporate income taxes made it attractive to companies and their employees, and while other states tightened their usury laws, South Dakota relaxed them, attracting numerous credit card companies.

VERMILLION, S.D. -- Even in this world of multicultural whirl, global change and postmodern indeterminacy, there still are things that can be said for sure, such as: South Dakota is a farm state.Actually, not exactly.Either North or South Dakota -- it depends on whom you ask, and how they measure -- is the state most dependent on agriculture. However, the 2000 Census probably will find that a majority of South Dakotans live in cities and towns. If you ask an economist at the University of South Dakota to gauge agriculture's portion of this state's economy, he would say 10 percent.
