Sioux City (pronounced /ˌsuːˈsɪti/) is a city in Plymouth and Woodbury counties in the western part of the U.S. state of Iowa. The population was 85,013 at the 2000 census; census estimates showed a slight decline to 82,807 by 2008, which makes it currently the fourth largest city in the state.[1] Sioux City is the primary city of the four-county Sioux City, IANESD Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA), with a population of 144,360 in 2000 and a slight decrease to an estimated 143,157 in 2008.[2] The Sioux City-Vermillion, IA-NE-SD Combined Statistical Area has an estimated population of 156,762 as of 2008.[3] It is the county seat of Woodbury County,[4] in which the large majority of the city lies.

Sioux City is at the navigational head of the Missouri River, about 90 miles (140 km) north of the Omaha-Council Bluffs metropolitan area. Sioux City and the surrounding areas of northwestern Iowa, northeastern Nebraska and southeastern South Dakota are sometimes referred to as Siouxland, especially by the local media. Sioux City is the second largest city in the Sioux Falls-Sioux City, SD-IA-MN-NE Designated Market Area (DMA), with a population of 417,952.[5] Interstate 29 is the major highway in Sioux City and surroundings. It approaches the city from Omaha to the south before curving northwest along the Missouri River near downtown. The highway then enters South Dakota and curves back to the north as it approaches Sioux Falls.

In 2008 and 2009, the Sioux City tri-state metropolitan area was recognized by Site Selection Magazine as the top economic development community in the United States for communities with populations between 50,000 and 200,000 people.[6]
