KIDS COUNT Data Center

County- and school district-level data for Kentucky is accessible online through the KIDS COUNT Data Center. The Data Center brings together hundreds of indicators of child well-being collected by KIDS COUNT grantees from state and local sources with data collected by the Annie E. Casey Foundation from national sources.  The KIDS COUNT Data Center allows users to generate:

  • Profiles – Create a custom report of multiple data points for a specific geographic area.
  • Graphs  – Create line graphs to see how data has changed over time, and create bar graphs to illustrate differences across geographies.
  • Maps – View color-coded interactive maps of the data.
  • Rankings – Compare states, counties, or school districts to each other and find out who is doing the best on an indicator.
  • Raw Data – Download data in spreadsheet format.

Want a quick lesson on how to use the Data Center? For tips and tricks to help you find the information you need on the Data Center, check out this guide or watch the video below.

Note: The data reflected on the KIDS COUNT Data Center is continually updated and will reflect more recent data than the annual County Data Book, if available.

If you have questions about KIDS COUNT data or would like to submit a data request, please contact Senior Policy Analyst Amy Swann at or 502-895-8167, ext. 115.


A project of the Annie E. Casey Foundation since 1990, KIDS COUNT is a national and state-by-state effort to track the status of children in the United States. KIDS COUNT exists to measure child outcomes and contribute to public accountability for those outcomes, resulting in a model for data-driven advocacy for children, their families, and their communities.
