Discover Inequalities

in the City of Tulsa

  • Inequality, especially entrenched systemic Inequality, can be so pervasive that pointing to a specific and concrete example can be a challenge. Similarly, areas of Inequality can be hard to identify when we are forced to look introspectively at out everyday lives.

     

    To assist with the mission of facing the challenges that Inequality can present, the Tulsa Equality Indicators team is developing tools to help fellow Tulsans Discover Inequalities in the City of Tulsa. Below you will find interactive resources that we have developed in-house. We will continue to update this section and incorporate new content based on community feedback.

    Mapping Tulsa Equality Indicators

  •  

    Want more information on Tulsa Equality Indicators’ geographic comparison groups?

    Use our Equality Indicators Mapping Tool to learn more about the specific locations of the Tulsa Equality Indicators’ geographic comparison groups. The way the mapping tool works is very simple – just use the interactive menu below to turn each layer on or off. From there, select the regions from the drop down menu in the activated boundary layers that you would like to see visualized on the map.
     
    The three layers active by default are outlines for Tulsa County, City of Tulsa, and Regions of Tulsa divided by North, East, South, West, and Downtown / Midtown. These three geographic groups are used throughout the Tulsa Equality Indicators report for comparison purposes. Also included as map layers are City Council Districts and individual ZIP Codes – although these geographic groups are not specifically used in the Tulsa Equality Indicators report.
     
    The Tulsa Equality Indicators Mapping Tool is mobile friendly and a larger full screen version is in the works.
