Kentucky: Council on Postsecondary Education

Double the Numbers: 2020 Projections

In 2006, the Council completed a 2020 projections study to meet the educational attainment goal of the Kentucky Postsecondary Education Improvement Act of 1997. The study projected Kentucky will need 800,000 adults with at least a bachelor's degree by 2020 to reach the national average; in 2000, Kentucky had only 400,000.

To meet this goal, the CPE developed Double the Numbers: Kentucky's Plan to Increase College Graduates in October 2007, which outlines five strategies for ramping up degree production and takes a regional approach in helping Kentucky public institutions meet their 2020 bachelor's degree and undergraduate enrollment targets.
