The lines between counties show the percentage of residents who travel to other counties to work. For the purpose of clarity, only commuter flows of five percent and above are pictured below.

Cleveland County benefits from the firms in its area as well as its proximity to Oklahoma City. Cleveland County is home to the University of Oklahoma, and the county employs 42,642 workers. Although 104,714 residents work in neighboring partnership counties, particularly Oklahoma County, Cleveland County’s payroll imported far exceeds its payroll exported. Thus, Cleveland County, despite its residents leaving the county to work elsewhere, benefits from employment both in the county and in surrounding counties.
