Below-average salaries coupled with poor employment statistics make South Dakota a less-than-promising place for careers in project management. Only transportation, storage, and distribution managers reach the national median salary, earning $83,000 statewide and $82,000 in Sioux City. Natural sciences managers will have to console themselves with visits to Mount Rushmore, as only 110 of them currently work in the state and they only earn 80% of the national median salary. Most PMPs work in the Sioux City area.
