(Oklahoma City-AP) -- The state Commerce Department says the number of new jobs announced in Oklahoma last year is the most since 1995.

The department says companies announced during 2002 plans to create more than 78-hundred new jobs in the state.

A department survey shows the number of new jobs actually created are about half the number of the jobs announced.

Among the largest announcements last year are Cardinal Glass in Durant, Tracker Marine in Miami and Dollar Tree Stores in Marietta.
