2021 Tulsa Equality Score: 39.2 out of 100

Measuring progress towards greater equality in the City of Tulsa

Tulsa Equality Indicators was initiated in 2017 by the City of Tulsa and Community Service Council as a tool to measure and track disparities among subgroups of Tulsans over time. Four years of quantitative data are now available to inform our city and community leaders about inequalities in opportunities and outcomes, and to guide public policy and innovative solutions that will lead to greater equity for all Tulsans.

These six themes serve as the foundation for the Tulsa Equality Indicators tool. Each of the six themes is divided into three topics consisting of three indicators—54 indicators in total. View the scores for each indicator >
