Investigative Reporters & Editors and the Ida B. Wells Society for Investigative Reporting are collecting demographic information directly from investigative reporters, editors, producers and others who conduct investigative work in journalism from across the United States. Journalists will be asked 10 short questions related to demography and job duties. By looking for patterns, our team may learn more about the demographic landscape of investigative journalism talent at a national level.
We want to document the nationwide demographics of the investigative journalism talent in the United States.
We are hopeful that our report will provide demographic data that can be used to diversify who gets to conduct investigative work and steer future hiring and retention practices.
Investigative reporters, editors, producers and others who are employed in the United States and conduct investigative work in journalism.
Phase I, which involved numerous journalism organizations publicizing the census to their members and journalists across the country in general, ended July 31. The census form asked 10 brief questions, with estimated completion no more than a few minutes. The second phase will focus on reaching out to journalists via LinkedIn to complete the census form.
At the end of the census, you will be asked to provide an email address and when our report is complete you will receive a copy via email.
Your privacy is important to us. We will not share your information with anyone outside of our team and the information you provide will only be made public in aggregate form.
