The Tulsa MSA is a seven county metropolitan area located in northern Oklahoma, with Tulsa as its anchoring city.
Recently Tulsa has seen an influx of immigration within its borders. There are several reasons for this trend, and the first of those reasons is jobs. The city has one of the highest employment rates in the nation, as well as an average income that is 11% above the national average. Tulsa is a place with good job opportunities which makes it an ideal place for immigrants. This combined with the fact that the city has relatively low cost of living has caused the city to see a spike in its foreign-born population.
