Youth Poverty in Mayes County, Oklahoma
January 12, 2012
This report discusses a sample area population, Mayes County located in NE Oklahoma and within Cherokee Nation, through examinations of the area's youth poverty characteristics including locality poverty (South, Mid-America, Ozark-area, teen pregnancy, foster care, education, incarceration, unemployment, hunger, and mental illness). An array of local, state, and national data are used as supporting data, and the report does not propose a solution but attends to clarifying the complications in doing so. Mayes County, Oklahoma has a large Native American population (25-50%) and a similarly high impoverished population (25-50%); the data in this report serves as an example of such an area.
