The Kentucky Center for Education and Workforce Statistics (KCEWS) has released the Kentucky County Profiles 2014-15. The report is a comprehensive collection of the most current economic, social, education and employment data available about each of Kentucky’s 120 counties, as well as breakouts of each of the state’s area development districts, workforce investment areas, Appalachian and non-Appalachian regions.
KCEWS compiled and produced the report from statistics in the Kentucky Longitudinal Data System and a variety of federal, state and independent data sources in order to help state and local policymakers and others have easy access to critical information about their regions.
The report includes a breakdown of regional demographics, educational attainment, college readiness, employment by sector, education pipeline, college enrollment, college financial aid information and more.
One of the most significant changes since the last county profile report was released in 2012 is the addition of comparison information between Kentucky’s Appalachian and non-Appalachian regions.
