What are the top employment sectors in your county? What has been your county’s population trend since statehood? How does your county compare for health and educational attainment?

You can answer these questions and more with Oklahoma Policy Institute’s newly redesigned and updated CountySTATS fact sheets for 2015. These colorful, 2-page fact sheets display key statistics and charts for each of the state’s 77 counties, covering demographics, the economy, education, and health.

For example, you’ll see that:

  • Canadian County has the highest median household income at $63,889;
  • Adair County has the highest share of its population receiving food stamp benefits at 43.9 percent;
  • Payne County has the lowest teen birth rate at 22 births per 1,000;
  • At 10 percent, Oklahoma County ranks 61st in the share of its workforce employed in state and local government.

CountyStats is an invaluable tool for researchers, educators, economic developers, elected officials, and anyone else looking for a concise understanding of local conditions in Oklahoma.
