The Research Section within the Division of Information & 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.
The Research Section maintains the DWC Web site, produces all the agency's publications and has the responsibility of processing WC letters that are driven by statute.
