Please note: In both the LED Extraction Tool and the QWI Explorer, "All Ownership" data for South Dakota is not available due to public sector reporting issues. Both will show private sector data only until the issue is resolved. Select "Private Ownership" under Firm Ownership options to view private sector data. The U.S. Census Bureau hopes to have the issue resolved by next quarter.
