    State and national ACT WorkKeys NCRC data runs from January 2006 through September 30, 2019 , while county-level data is starting from January 2012. State job profile data runs from January 2007 through September 30, 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. State and national certificate totals include historical data prior to 2012.
