Howard Profile


Overview

Howard is a tiny city located in the state of South Dakota. With a population of 790 people and just one neighborhood, Howard is the 72nd largest community in South Dakota. Howard has a large stock of pre-World War II architecture, making it one of the older and more historic cities in the country.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some cities where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Howard is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Howard is a city of sales and office workers, professionals, and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Howard who work in office and administrative support (15.81%), healthcare (9.29%), and food service (7.31%).


Setting & Lifestyle

Because of many things, Howard is a very good place for families to consider. With an enviable combination of good schools, low crime, college-educated neighbors who tend to support education because of their own experiences, and a high rate of home ownership in predominantly single-family properties, Howard really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Howard perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly place to live.

Residents of the city have the good fortune of having one of the shortest daily commutes compared to the rest of the country. On average, they spend only 15.60 minutes getting to work every day.
