Geographic Regions of the Model

As is observable from the accompanying map, the state of Oklahoma is divided into six regions in the REMI model used by the CEBD. They are: Northwest Oklahoma, Northeast Oklahoma, Southwest Oklahoma, Southeast Oklahoma, the Oklahoma City metro area, and the Tulsa metro area. The Oklahoma metro area and the Tulsa metro area correspond to the Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) defined by the Office of Management & Budget.

Map of Oklahoma Divided into six regions

Additionally, any of the regions may be combined with any combination of the other regions to produce a user-defined region for the purposes of measuring economic impacts. For example, a policy situation affecting agriculture may be of more interest to the more rural regions of Oklahoma. In this case, the user-defined region could be northwest Oklahoma, northeast Oklahoma, southeast Oklahoma, and southwest Oklahoma.

For convenience, the following table details each of the counties that comprise the six geographic regions.
