Today Oklahoma Policy Institute published detailed county-level tables on 12 key social and economic indicators, now including time series data. The new tables on our State & County Data resource page cover topics such as:
- Population and income
- Poverty and free school lunch
- Employment in state and local government
- Labor force participation and unemployment
- Insurance, disability, obesity and smoking
New: County Data Tables
Download a table and compare all seventy-seven counties by their change over time in the share of residents without health insurance, for example, or the number of people receiving SSI disability benefits. Find out where your county ranks in terms of median household income, and if your residents’ incomes are rising or falling compared to the rest of the state.
Updated: Interactive Table Creator
We have also updated our online interactive database of state and county-level statistics, available at okpolicy.org/county-level-data. The interactive data app is available for free, 24-hours a day and serves as a comprehensive hub for publicly available state and local data. This tool is useful for anyone interested in reliable, easy-to-use, state and local data. Use the database to generate, view, explore, and download statistics across a range of topics and time periods. You can find statistics on:
- individual & family income;
- crime rates & firearm licenses;
- health and education;
- & much more.
