Kentucky by the numbers:10 percent

In its recent report Building Clean Energy Careers in Kentucky, the Mountain Association for Community Economic Development noted jobs in the clean-energy sector grew at a rate of 10 percent between 1998 and 2007. That's well above Kentucky's job-growth rate of 3.6 percent over that time span, according to the Pew Charitable Trusts analysis cited in the report.
