2008-10 County Profiles: A Publication in Support of Kentucky's Goal to Double the Number of Bachelor's Degree Holders by 2020
Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education
Doubling the Number of college graduates in Kentucky by 2020 will be challenging, but it is a worthy and achievable goal, and will make a real difference in the lives and livelihoods of Kentuckians. This report, a biennial publication of the Council on Postsecondary Education, shows how every county in the state can contribute toward this goal and benefit from the achievement of it. This edition features a new county ranking by the number of additional college graduates needed to bring the county up to the national average. This edition also includes a new graph showing the relationship between educational attainment and per capita income across Kentucky's fifteen area development districts, and a new graph and map showing the educational attainment of Kentuckians in an international context. Other new features on each county profile sheet include: (1) College graduation rates for students from the county; (2) Comparison of the county's in-state college-going rate with the Kentucky rate; and (3) Average ACT scores for each county's high school seniors (previous editions included ACT scores only for students entering college in Kentucky).
