State Demographer To Retire

May 15, 2014

After 14 years at South Dakota State University, Mike McCurry, State Demographer and supervisor of the SDSU Rural Life and Census Data Center, plans to retire after the 2014 Demography Conference (June 11-13).  The theme of the conference is "Everyone is a Demographer."  That's been McCurry's central message since moving to SDSU's Rural Life and Census Data Center in 2006.  He says we no longer need a university library to obtain demographic data as it's available anytime.  Governor Dennis Daugaard designated McCurry as South Dakota's state demographer in 2011.
