How we determined the whitest places in Oklahoma for 2020

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, specifically the percentage of white people living in each city in Oklahoma.

Specifically, we looked at table B03002: Hispanic OR LATINO ORIGIN BY RACE. Here are the category names as defined by the Census:

  • Hispanic or Latino
  • White alone*
  • Black or African American alone*
  • American Indian and Alaska Native alone*
  • Asian alone*
  • Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander alone*
  • Some other race alone*
  • Two or more races*
* Not Hispanic or latino

Our particular column of interest here was the number of people who identified as White alone.

We limited our analysis to non-CDPs with a population greater than 5,000 people. That left us with 71 cities.

We then calculated the percent of residents that are White. The percentages ranked from 85.8% to 30.3%.

Finally, we ranked each city based on the percent of White population with a higher score being more White than a lower score. Piedmont took the distinction of being the most White, while Anadarko was the least White city. You can download the data here.
