AISP Network: KYSTATS

About the Work

The Kentucky Center for Statistics (KYSTATS) collects and links data to evaluate efforts across sectors in the Commonwealth. KYSTATS is responsible for developing, maintaining, and utilizing Kentucky’s longitudinal data system and the Labor Market Information Office. KYSTATS is legislatively authorized to collect and link data from birth through the workforce in order to evaluate education, workforce and service programs in Kentucky. The current KYSTATS priorities are focused on using linked administrative data to provide actionable information about equity issues and barriers in the Commonwealth. This includes developing reports, responding to research requests, and providing statistical data about these efforts so policymakers, practitioners, and the public can make better informed decisions.

KYSTATS is hosted by Kentucky Education and Workforce Development Cabinet.
