    State and national ACT WorkKeys NCRC data runs from January 2006 through October 31, 2019 , while county-level data is starting from January 2012. State job profile data runs from January 2007 through October 31, 2019 , while national job profile data reaches back to 1993. Again, please note that county-level ACT WorkKeys NCRC data collection began in January 2012 for WorkKeys Internet Version, and in July 2012 for pencil and paper assessments.
