Jasper County is the southernmost county in the U.S. state of South Carolina. The population was 26,629 based on a 2013 estimate from the U.S. Census Bureau. Its county seat is Ridgeland. The county was formed in 1912 from portions of Hampton County and Beaufort County.

Jasper County is located in the Lowcountry region of the state and is included in the Hilton Head Island-Bluffton-Beaufort, SC Metropolitan Statistical Area. For several decades, in contrast to neighboring Beaufort County, Jasper was one of the poorest counties in the state. Recent development from 2000 onwards has given the county new residents, expanded business opportunities, and a wealthier tax base. Since 2010, Jasper County is the second-fastest-growing county by population in South Carolina, behind Horry County.
