For more than 30 years, the National Institute for Computer-Assisted Reporting (NICAR) has helped enhance journalists’ investigative work through collecting, sorting and making sense of data. If you don’t have the resources, time, skills or tools to get it done, NICAR can help.
We’ll tackle almost anything, from data conversion to cleaning to full-blown analysis. We work with our own data and with data you provide. We charge an hourly rate based on the difficulty of the job and your market size. We’ll give you a good-faith estimate before we start the work.
We always keep your data and your story ideas to ourselves. We’ll never share anything with anybody, ever, unless you give us explicit permission.
Services start at $75 per hour for small news organizations. Rates increase in relation to the complexity of work and size of the newsroom. Long-term contracts and retainer services are available.
Here are some examples of the types of jobs we’ve done in the past:
David Herzog is a veteran investigative reporter, data journalist and educator with more than 25 years of experience. He’s a Journalism Professions professor at the Missouri School of Journalism and serves as the academic adviser to the National Institute for Computer-Assisted Reporting. He is also the director of data & research services at IRE. Before joining the school and IRE in 2002, Herzog spent nearly 15 years as a newspaper reporter and editor. He’s worked for the Providence Journal, The Baltimore Sun and The (Allentown, Pa.) Morning Call.
