The Research Section within the Division of Information and Research conducts specialized injury and industry research by collecting, reviewing and comparing data that is relevant to workers’ compensation issues in Kentucky.  Complex Structured Query Language (SQL) queries are completed, and reports are formatted to answer in-depth open records requests and to monitor agency, carrier and employer performance.  This data is highly beneficial when it comes to exploring areas of legislative interest. 
Due to the increased volume of requests for information from the Kentucky Department of Workers’ Claims (DWC), this portion of the Web site is dedicated to routine statistics.   Other data may be gathered through accessing the DWC Annual Report Fiscal Year 2011-2012  or by contacting the DWC.
