Wondering where to obtain data for your business and investigative stories?
Data journalist Steve Doig, the Knight Chair at Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, will demonstrate 10 data sources you may never have heard of that can lend rich context to your business and economic stories and spark meaningful investigations.
From ZIP code-level business patterns to foreign trade imports and exports to hospital data, Doig will walk you through seldom-used databases that hold treasures for reporters.
You’ll learn what’s in the data sets, how to get them, what you can pull from them, what questions to ask of the data and potential story ideas to develop — you’ll leave armed with new knowledge and fresh ideas.
