KTVB-Boise investigative reporter Jamie Grey explains how to get started on data projects, offering story ideas and tips for visualizing data on air. She walks through several examples including:
- Finding stories in airport and flight data
- Analyzing interstate crash data using basic Excel techniques
- Charting population change using driver’s license data
- Using county jail data to determine the cost of recidivism
- Turning quick-hit stories using post-election and bridge data
Grey’s presentation is designed for broadcast journalists, but would be good for anyone looking to get started in data journalism.
