Instructions for South Dakota Community Labor Profile Custom Profile

The Custom Area Profile allows you to custom-build a CLP, using counties (areas) of your choice.

1. If you want to include a city, town or CDP (Census Designated Place) in your Profile (use the scroll bar to move through the list), select the South Dakota place you would like by clicking on it. However, you do not have to select a place to continue building a custom profile.

2. Next, you must select a South Dakota area (counties or MSAs) you want included in your Profile.

3. If you would like to include out-of-state areas (counties or MSAs) in your Profile follow the same steps described in section 2. You must select a South Dakota County before you can include an out-of-state county. You do not have to select any out-of-state areas in your Profile to continue building a custom profile.

You can select more than one area, place or out of state area by holding down the control key (Ctrl) and clicking on the counties you want to include. Use the scroll bar to move through the list.

4. Once you have made your place and all of your area selections, type in the title of your CLP and press the bar that says {Make your area selection, enter a title and press here.} You will then be able to view and print the custom CLP you just created.

Note: You will not be able to select just Lincoln, McCook, Meade, Minnehaha, Pennington or Turner counties as a single county area. If you select any of these counties by itself, you will receive area information for either the Sioux Falls or Rapid City MSAs (the Sioux Falls MSA consists on Lincoln, McCook, Minnehaha and Turner counties and the Rapid City MSA consists of Meade and Pennington counties). However, if you select any of these counties with with an additional in-state area you will receive information for just the counties you selected. For example, if you select Lincoln and Union counties, the information contained in that CLP would be for only those two counties. It would not contain information for Minnehaha or Turner counties. By the same token, if you select Pennington and Custer, the information in your CLP would only be reflective of those two counties and would not include information on Meade County.
