The journalists on this panel have sparked debate and action from their reporting on social disparities and economic inequality. They have also produced key examples of interactive data-driven storytelling that amateur and advanced professionals will appreciate. This session will look at their investigations about recent national news, with particular focus on:
• Data that demonstrates the "resegregation" of American schools and the methodologies used;
• Data related to the President's "Middle class economics" proposals;
• Data about "economic harassment" in Ferguson, Mo., and elsewhere;
• How data reporters can proceed when there's a serious lack of data on controversial events.
