Community Development Data Needs in Morehead-Rowan County, Kentucky
As a continuation of work done by ATP students over the past four years, students in this year’s ATP class will work closely with officials and other community leaders in Morehead-Rowan County to identify, collect, and analyze key data from local, regional, state and/or federal sources that they need to help them understand and improve the economic conditions and quality of life in the county. An answer to the question “Why is this area so persistently distressed?” is the long-term objective. Students will work with community leaders to identify the causal factors at work that account for the persistent distress of this community and region and to facilitate sound and sustainable policy development.
