What is data journalism?

Before reporting was just about words but now it’s much more, its about telling a story through data. It is not just about obtaining the information it’s about what the data tells you. It lets you tell story in a way people will understand and enjoy it while also recognising the power of measurement in helping public conversation.

Data has become increasingly important because we have the tools to really analyse it and find patterns and trends.
