The Oklahoma City Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City released the latest issue of the quarterly publication, The Oklahoma Economist.

In the publication, Chad Wilkerson, Oklahoma City branch executive, vice president and economist at the Oklahoma City Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, said Oklahoma continued to outpace the nation in economic growth during the early fall months.

He went on to comment that the state's payroll employment was up 2.7 percent from a year ago, or more than 42,000 jobs. This compares to only 1.4 percent in the nation.
