A new report shows Oklahoma is losing population with the primary reason being work-related.

The Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, which serves much of Oklahoma, released a report saying that in each of the past three years, more people moved out of Oklahoma than moved into the state.

The report says the Sooner State saw a boom in population growth in the early 2,000’s before the sudden downturn. The Federal Reserve says the state's economy, following a downturn in the oil industry, is the primary reason for more people leaving.
