The Spina Bifida statistics for Oklahoma are as follows: In this state, 3.74 babies have this medical condition out of 10,000 births. The figures are based on data which was collected during the years 2001-2005. This figure shows a decrease in the number of babies having this disease when compared to the previous data.

Around 1,362 people are presently living with this medical problem in the state of Oklahoma. An estimated 1.1 million women are due to give birth and some are a high risk of delivering babies who are affected with this health issue. The people of Hispanic origin consist of 7.6 percent of the population  which amounts  to 276,819 (Hispanics traditionally are at higher risk of SB).

There are two SB clinics in the state which provide help and assistance to those affected with SB. One SB clinic is found  in Oklahoma City while the other SB clinic is located in Tulsa. However there are currently no support groups or camps in this state.
