Census data released this week show that the state's biggest cities and counties enjoyed robust growth from 2000 to 2010.
The big winner was Oklahoma City. It added 73,867 residents over the decade — a 15% increase — to a population of 579,999. It remains the state's largest city. Suburban counties just outside the city grew, too, pushing the metro area to 1,252,987.
"People are moving to the metro areas," says Steven Barker, a senior researcher for the Oklahoma Commerce Department. "We're looking at very significant growth."
The state's total population grew 8.7% to 3,751,351.

Oklahoma's big metropolitan areas — especially Oklahoma City, the capital — are attracting new residents from across the nation and the state's rural areas.
