    Well, I couldn’t find the stats for cities proper, so both compare the MSA.

    And both measure employees in the areas. So a farm worker living in LA, and working in the fields outside of LA, would still count. LA is also a whole different kind of farm work than OKC, requiring a much larger pool of laborers.

    The chart for OKC doesn't specify the MSA, are you sure it's MSA?

    Believe it or not, and I don't know if this will last because of Elon's company problems with loosing money, but due to Space X, LA has a rapidly growing space company scene that is growing all the time. I don't know if that industry would just be classified as government or what.

    Yes, it's MSA. It also says oklahomacity_msa in the web address.

    Well, the numbers are the numbers and they don't lie, but there has to be more to it than just a simplified pie chart. There is no way OKC is more diverse than LA.

  5. Default Re: Oklahoma City Economic Reports

    OKC does seem to be more diverse than LA by the look of those charts.

    I'd also argue that Seattle economy is not very diverse: Aerospace, IT, Mfg, Mass Merchandising, Port, Services, Govt, and Healthcare/Services. Of course IT is by far the biggest and richest sector but I'd totally believe OKC would be more diverse than here.

    Actually, I bet that number has changed substantially. O and G employment is not even close to what it was in 2014.

    Yeah I really think some posters need to study up on the meaning of a diversified economy. Diversity and size/value are not the same thing.

    It's also funny to see posters insist that somewhere else is more diverse simply because they perceive diversity to be a superlative.

    Actually...I could be wrong, but I believe diversity was an old, old wooden ship that was used during the Civil War Era.

    I'd say that's a good month and trend.

    Is that necessary? I don’t think anyone would take this as bad news.

    Leaving out growth attributable to the midyear sales tax increase, sales tax was up 5.85 percent from fiscal 2017, well above the 2 percent target for 2018.


    Dowler said Oklahoma City took in almost $8 million more than projected for the general fund, the primary account for day-to-day expenses...

    ...The general fund for the budget year starting July 1 increases to $460 million, a 13.9 percent increase over the starting point a year ago.
    Good indicators that our economy & growth will get back on track. Our biggest growth wave indicators should begin once the majority of our MAPS 3 projects are completed.

    A slight slowdown for the mid September to mid October period. (It did rain a bunch, that affects a lot more than you think).

    Online sales tax continues to surge

    7,000 new jobs added to the metro area in the next few years. Not bad! I’m anxious to see new population numbers for the metro.

    The BEA released GDP stats for counties and metros; OKC metro GDP for 2018 was $81.017 billion, up $6.404 billion from 2017 (+8.6%).

    That metro GDP report is really quite remarkable. OKC's GDP has doubled since 2003.

    Thank you for posting. I have to think that rate of growth is among the nation's best.
