Population of Oklahoma

About 3,800,000 people live in Oklahoma (twenty-eighth in terms of population among US states . The average population density in Oklahoma is about 21 people per km 2 (thirty-fifth in the USA).

The largest city in the state is its capital, Oklahoma City, with about 600,000 people (thirtieth place in the list of the largest cities in the United States). Other major cities in Oklahoma are Tulsa (about 400,000 people, forty-fifth), Norman (over 110,000 people), Broken Arrow (over 100,000 people) and Lawton (Lawton, about 100,000 people).

Oklahoma’s largest urban clusters have grown around Oklahoma City (about 1,300,000 residents, forty-third on the list of U.S. metropolitan areas) and Tulsa (about 950,000 residents, fifty-fourth). About sixty percent of Oklahoma residents live in these huge agglomerations.

The racial composition of the population of Oklahoma:

  • White – 72.2%
  • Black – 7.4%
  • Asians – 1.7%
  • Native Americans (Indians or Eskimos of Alaska) – 8.6%
  • Native Hawaiian or Oceanian – less than 0.1%
  • Other races – 4.1%
  • Two or more races – 5.9%
  • Hispanic or Latino (of any race) – 8.9%

Oklahoma ranks second (after California) in the United States in terms of the number of representatives of indigenous peoples (Indians) living in the state and fourth (after Alaska, New Mexico and South Dakota) in relation to their number to the total population.

The largest ethnic (national) groups among the population of Oklahoma:

  • Germans – 14.6%
  • Irish – 12.6%
  • English – 8.2%
  • Mexicans – 7.1%
  • French – 2.4%
  • Dutch – 2.0%
  • Scots – 1.8%
  • Italians – 1.7%

The largest Oklahoma populations by religion are:

  • Christians – about 85%, including:
    • Protestants – about 70%, including:
      • Baptists – about 26%
      • Methodists – about 9%
    • Catholics – about 13%
  • Muslims – less than 1%
  • Jews – less than 1%
  • Atheists – about 12%

In Oklahoma, as in other southern states of the USA, the percentage of believers among the population is very high. So, for example, in the city of Tulsa, more than 60% of residents constantly attend church (this is a very high figure for the United States), and one of the country’s largest theological universities is also located here. Tulsa is sometimes referred to as one of the “buckles” (i.e. centers) of the ” Bible Belt “, a region in the US South that has a large following of the largest Protestant organization in the United States, the Southern Baptist Convention.
