About the district

Norman outperformed in comparison to the rest of Oklahoma in terms of higher education achievement in 2010. The United States Census Bureau found that 43.4% of Norman residents aged 25 years and older had attained a bachelor's degree compared to 23.2% for Oklahoma as a whole. The median household income in Norman was $48,248 compared to $44,891 for the state of Oklahoma. The poverty rate in Norman was 17.6% compared to 16.6% for the entire state.
Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent. This Ballotpedia page provides a more detailed explanation of how the Census Bureau handles race and ethnicity in its surveys.
