The Kentucky Center for Statistics (KYStats) collects and links data to evaluate education and workforce efforts in the Commonwealth. This includes developing reports, responding to research requests, and providing statistical data about these efforts so policymakers, agencies, and the general public can make better-informed decisions.
This is an invaluable data resource that can benefit every K-12, higher education, local government or workforce development entity in the Commonwealth.
