Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of South Dakota's counties, including Deuel, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<3>The pronunciation we've provided is our attempt to give a phonetic pronunciation for Astoria. While it might not be exactly right, hopefully it will be close. If we have it wrong or there's a better way to pronounce the name, please contact us through our Feedback Page.
<4>A demonym is the name for a resident of a community which is usually derived from (or is related to) the name of that community. In other words, it's how the residents of Astoria refer to themselves. It's important to note that there aren't any rules for taking a town's name and turning it into a demonym. A demonym is informal and while the majority of Astoria may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.
<5>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Astoria.
<6>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Astoria - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Astoria.
