List Of Census-designated Places In Oklahoma


The list of Census Designated Places in Oklahoma contains those areas defined by the US Census Bureau as CDPs. A CDP is a "statistical entity ... comprising a densely settled concentration of population that is not within an incorporated place...". CDPs have no governmental powers. For some reason the CDPs in Oklahoma are all located in the northeastern quarter of the state.

Many of the CDPs were named for communities located within the defined entities, or for nearby communities. Where known, the associated communities are also listed for reference. The sources for the associated communities are primarily from Shirk's Oklahoma Place Names ( ISBN 0-8061-2028-2 ), the United States Geological Survey, or the list of unincorporated communities in Oklahoma.

Famous quotes containing the words list, places and/or oklahoma:

    Feminism is an entire world view or gestalt, not just a laundry list of women’s issues.
    Charlotte Bunch (b. 1944)

    The mother whose self-image is dependent on her children places on those children the responsibility for her own identity, and her involvement in the details of their lives can put great pressure on the children. A child suffers when everything he or she does is extremely important to a parent; this kind of over-involvement can turn even a small problem into a crisis.
    Grace Baruch (20th century)

    I know only one person who ever crossed the ocean without feeling it, either spiritually or physically.... he went from Oklahoma to France and back again ... without ever getting off dry land. He remembers several places I remember too, and several French words, but he says firmly, “We must of went different ways. I don’t rightly recollect no water, ever.”
    M.F.K. Fisher (1908–1992)
