IRE Workshop: Money Stories in Census Data
June 3, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The U.S. Census Bureau collects loads of money-related data, waiting to be exploited for your business reporting needs. As of February 2015, there’s even more of it, with a new set of recently released data that’s ready to spark meaningful stories or add layers of context to already compelling stories.
Learn how to use money-related census data and combine that with local data sets to generate new investigative angles and report original, high-impact data-driven stories in a free pre-conference workshop by the Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism (businessjournalism.org) from 2-5 p.m. Wednesday, June 3. The session will provide journalists at all levels with story ideas that they 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, most recently a new media specialist at Arizona Capitol Times, 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.
