Description: Computer-Assisted Reporting is a simple but effective how-to guide that provides the basics for any journalist or student beginning to use data for their news stories. It has step-by-step instructions on how to do basic data analysis in journalism while addressing why these digital tools should be an integral part of reporting in the 21st Century. The book pays particular attention to the need for accuracy in computer-assisted reporting and to both the potential and pitfalls in utilizing large datasets in journalism. The text is an ideal core text for courses on data-driven journalism or computer assisted reporting that pushes back on current trends, helping both current and future journalists become more accountable for the accuracy and relevance of the data they acquire and share.
