6. Data Policies


The Kentucky Center for Statistics (KYSTATS) collects and links high-quality, actionable data from six state agencies to improve education and workforce programs in the state. KYSTATS has a data request hub, which includes a data access and use policy, data-sharing agreement, and a data dictionary to facilitate the exchange of data with requestors. In 2019, Kentucky released a Master Data Agreement for use by all executive agencies, which are also subject to the state’s Enterprise Privacy Policy. KYSTATS also has a Security Policy that contains procedures for securing the confidentiality of the data maintained by KYSTATS.
