OKLAHOMA – A new study shows the poorest county in each state.

24/7 Wall St. reviewed the poorest county in each state based on data from the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey.

According to 24/7 Wall St., Pushmataha County is the poorest county in Oklahoma.

“Pushmataha County households had a median annual income of less than $30,000 between 2009 and 2013, the poorest in Oklahoma. Perhaps due in part to the low incomes, residents also had relatively low health insurance coverage rates. More than 27% did not have health care insurance over the five years through 2013, versus the comparable national figure of 14.9%,” 24/7 Wall St. said on their website.
