OK Policy and the Oklahoma Asset Building Coalition are pleased to partner with CFED to release the 2009-2010 Assets and Opportunity Scorecard, a comprehensive look at wealth, poverty and the financial security of families. The Scorecard ranks states in 6 issue areas: Financial Assets and Income; Businesses and Jobs; Housing and Homeownership; Health Care; Education; and Community Investment and Accountability.
This presentation provides an overview of the project and its main findings for Oklahoma. You can view the presentation or download it as a PDF file.
The Oklahoma Asset Building Coalition and CFED issued press releases on the Scorecard’s findings for Oklahoma. The release was prominently covered by the Tulsa World andAssociated Press, among others.
You can see the data for Oklahoma online or as a 4-page PDF state profile.

CFED has subsequently released a 1-page Asset Poverty Profile for Oklahoma.
