IRE Workshop: How to Cover Money Using Census Data

by April 30, 2015

Reynolds training

In February 2015, the U.S. Census Bureau released new data that you can use to tell compelling stories on a variety of beats.

The Reynolds Center will teach you how to find and analyze this new census data, as well as how to combine it with other localized data sets to produce meaningful investigative reports.

Join us before this year’s Investigative Reporters And Editors conference for a pre-conference workshop. It takes place Wednesday, June 3 from 2-5 p.m. at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown.

You’ll leave with new skills working with census data, and story ideas you can take home and report.

The workshop will be led by Evan Wyloge, senior reporter at the Arizona Center for Investigative Reporting, an independent, nonprofit media organization dedicated to statewide accountability journalism in Arizona.

Wyloge was most recently a new media specialist at Arizona Capitol Times. He has worked as a journalist for more than a decade, focused on accountability and watchdog reporting, with an emphasis on data analysis. He has a master’s degree in journalism from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication and a previous degree in political science.
