Various other publications rank Oklahoma among the top ten states for middle class job creation (New Geography, 2013) and the Best Place of Business (Forbes, 2014).

The Bureau of Economic Analysis also noted that Oklahoma City was one of three large metropolitans in the United States to post a GDP gain of 3.5% or higher during the 2011-2013 period. Oklahoma City was also ranked fourth nationally as “most aspirational cities” based upon economy, quality of life and demographics (The Daily Beast, 2013). As a retirement destination, Oklahoma City was ranked in Forbes (2014) among the “25 Best Places to Retire.”
