Publikace: Using European Data in Journalism
The European Union is awash with numbers. Data about how european citizens live and our taxes are spent are widely available - the challenge lies in using them. Figures are published on a centralised, national and regional basis with little in common. Data formats, presentation and quality vary greatly. How can we use this information as citizens and journalists to understand the union and generate stories? Why should journalists and developers work together to look at European data? Using practical and live examples of data use including commission expenses and structural funds we will demonstrate how to get EU data, how to prepare it for analysis, the trends to look out for and how to translate it into a story.
