Oklahoma Employment Analysis

( Data Date : April 2017 )

Ohio Employment Data

Located in the Mountain-Plains region of the U.S., the Sooner State is primarily known for oil and natural gas production, as well as cattle, wheat, and aerospace industries. The energy industry accounts for an outsized share of Oklahoma’s real GDP, and the recent decline in oil prices and associated job losses have hurt the rest of the economy through multiplier effects. Modest hiring gains in health services, construction and leisure help offset cuts in mining and manufacturing. (Source: Oklahoma Employment Security Commission)
