While the U.S. economy is showing signs of recovery, there are a few states that are still struggling with unemployment rates as well as underemployment. However a recent study conducted by Nerd Wallet has shown that the Sooner state is one of few states in the U.S that is taking charge in the economic recovery.

The economic website shows that Oklahoma has a unemployment rate of 5.5% overall. When Nerd Wallet began to breakdown the top 15 counties of the state for job seekers, they found that Comanche County actually ranked 14 in the entire state.

According to the findings, Comanche County showed a 9% growth in the working age population from 2009 to 2011. Nerd Wallet has also concluded that Comanche County currently has an unemployment rate of 6.1%.

The neighboring Stephens County actually was higher on the list and ranked at #10 for job seekers. Although Nerd Wallet determined the working age only went up 4%, the county has a lower unemployment rate than Comanche. Stephens county touted a 4.6% unemployment rate.

Beckham county held the top spot on Nerd Wallet’s list with a 10.9% working age as well as a 2.8% unemployment rate, the lowest rate in the top 15 list.
