  • Oklahoma's higher education cuts have hit harder at regional universities

    Caroline Halter, StateImpact|Jun 9, 2019

    Oklahoma has slashed funding for higher education by over 25 percent since 2008.

At the same time, real household incomes have actually decreased in much of the NSU’s service area accordi...

  • Who has been leaving Oklahoma, and will the trend continue?

    Chad Wilkerson and Courtney Shupert, Oklahoma City Branch Executive and Oklahoma Economist|Jun 9, 2019

The recent net outflow of people has reduced overall state population growth to the slowest rate since 1990. This edition of the Oklahoma Economist investigates the recent reversal in Oklahoma's net domestic migration to see where people are...

  • Drone development aims to fill severe weather prediction gap

    Jun 9, 2019

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Researchers at the University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University are jointly developing drone technology to more accurately forecast the weather. Phil Chilson, professor at the OU School of Meteorology, said the university has tried to use drones in meteorology since 2008, but their efforts advanced in 2015 with National Science Foundation funding, The Journal Record reported.
