It is part of the Oklahoma City metropolitan area.[3] As of 2010, Norman was estimated to have 115,876 full-time residents,[4] making it the third-largest city in Oklahoma[5] and the 234th-largest city in the United States.[6][7] It is the county seat of Cleveland County and is the county's center for business and employment.[8]
