Review Of Edmond by HomeSnacks User

The state has some of the dumbest drivers Ive ever seen aside from Texas. They go around like they got there licenses from serial boxes. And there always on there phone because talking on the phone while driving isnt illegal here. And when you pull up to a stop sign or stop light a lot of them will get right up on your bumper, Im from Washington and I went back recently and the drivers are far more competent. I could go on and on about more reasons why Oklahoma s***s but that would be an even longer list.

Beautiful country but crappy uneducated morons make up the vast majority of the population. So… just awful

How We Determined The Richest Places In Oklahoma For 2019

Map Of The Richest Places To Live In Oklahoma
The first thing that comes to most people’s minds when they think about determining the richest places is to simply identify personal incomes. After all, rich people have really high salaries.

However, we don’t believe that one statistic wholly encompasses what it means to be one of the “richest places”. So we looked at this set of criteria from the newly released 2013-2017 American Community Survey:

  • Poverty Level
  • Median Household Income
  • Unemployment Rate

Median household income is the most digestible way to understand how rich a place really is. The unemployment rate tries to capture the prospects for more people to become rich. If more people are employed, the richer the future looks.

After we collected the data for all 76 places with more than 5,000 people in Oklahoma, we ranked each place from 1 to 76 for each of the criteria, with 1 being the richest.

We then averaged all the rankings for a place into a “Rich Score” with the place having the lowest overall Rich Score, Piedmont, crowned the “Richest City In Oklahoma For 2019”.

  1. The photo used for Jenks and Bixby is of downtown TULSA.
    Taken near 6th and Peoria, this article FAILED to note that.
    Fact is, while Jenks and Bixby might be one of the “richest places in Oklahoma”, their cities are not that attractive.

  2. Stillwater is a college town. So if you’re including college students in the median income of the populace then that is a poor portrait of the actual “full-time, year round” populace.
