Reporter Sarah Cohen, the Knight Chair in Data Journalism at Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication & Robert Gebeloff, The New York Times, will present data sources you can use to bolster your business and economic stories in this pre-conference workshop, sponsored by the Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism.
Business and financial figures continue to play an important role in stories on different beats throughout the newsroom. Cohen will demonstrate how to work with sources readily available to reporters, from government websites like bea.gov to tools like Social Explorer. You’ll learn what’s in different data sets, how to get them, what you can pull from them, what questions to ask of the data and ideas for stories on the business beat and beyond.
