How we determined the whitest places in Oklahoma for 2018

In order to rank the whitest places in Oklahoma, we had to determine what measurable criteria defines whiteness.

Obviously we had to count how many white people living there, but being one of the whitest cities in Oklahoma means much more than just having a high percentage of folks who are of the Caucasian persuasion.

These are cities jam-packed with all the stuff white folks love, based on everyone’s favorite stereotypes. After breaking it down, we came up with following criteria to run on 76 cities:

  • Percentage of population that’s white
  • Whole Foods per capita
  • Farmers markets per capita
  • Vegan restaurants per capita
  • Pottery Barns per capita
  • Yoga studios per capita

Note: For the sake of getting reliable numbers, we counted places within a city’s border, as well as within a short driving distance.

All of these results are listed in a per capita basis, meaning number of stores per person in a state. Additionally, we limited the analysis to non-CDPs that have over 5,000 people.

We ranked each place with scores from 1 to 76 in each category, where 1 was the whitest.

Next, we averaged the rankings for each place to create a whiteness index.

And finally, we crowned the city with the highest whiteness index the ‘Whitest City In Oklahoma.’ We’re lookin’ at you, Alva.
