Incomplete Census numbers result in misleading data

By Alaina Beautiful Bald Eagle | September 09, 2020

One of the more hidden effects of a lack of Census response is misleading data in the news. With a response rate in the high teens for CRST and neighboring reservations, what story cannot be told from the data? For example, a recent article from Stacker (thestacker.com) highlighted data from the decennial census and the yearly American Community Survey (ACS). […]

Trump has again said that he might not abide by the results of the upcoming election if he doesn’t like those results, that is, if he loses. He will lose. Trump won in 2016, thanks to the […]

Over the last week, many schools across South Dakota resumed classes – both in-person and online. This marks the beginning of a sense of normalcy many of our kids are experiencing for the first time in several months. Although there’s nothing normal about wearing masks or attending classes virtually, this is our reality for the time being and thankfully our […]
