Okla. Ranks 33rd Nationally in Wealth Rankings (Jan 31, 2012)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A new ranking of the 50 states shows Oklahoma comes in 33rd in the ability of residents to save and build wealth and avoid poverty.

The Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit Corporation for Enterprise Development released its rankings. The group is focused on expanding economic opportunities for low-income families and communities.

It ranked the 50 states and the District of Columbia on five areas: financial assets, jobs, housing, health care, and education.

Oklahoma's highest ranking was 14th in housing and home ownership, which earned the state a "B" grade. The state scored poorly in health care, ranking 41st and in financial assets and income, where it ranked 38th. Oklahoma received a "D" in both of those categories.
