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.
