About the Survey

Governor Mary Fallin, the Department of Commerce and nearly a score of partner organizations have worked together to launch a unique Survey of Oklahoma Executives that asks business leaders for their insight on challenges and issues in Oklahoma's current business climate.

State leaders and economic developers will use survey results to help shape future actions, policies and programs that will help businesses to thrive, encourage job creation and support a growing and vital workforce in Oklahoma.

With more than 8 in 10 new jobs being created by companies already located in Oklahoma, Governor Fallin knows that supporting these businesses is key to building a healthy state economy.

The survey has provided us with factual business climate information from 5,376 business leaders. The results prioritize the challenges and issues they feel are most important and need to be fixed, about what is good about doing business in Oklahoma and their optimism for the future. is the largest survey of Oklahoma employers ever conducted. Because so many companies participated, the survey has a 95 percent confidence level, with a margin of error ranging from only 0.9 percent to 1.6 percent.
