IMPORTANCE OF NUMBERS IN A STORY

Free Data Journalism Webinar

It’s a running joke that many journalists got into media to avoid math and numbers. That’s false — it’s inevitable for journalists to encounter computations in the daily grind. This webinar is for every reporter struggling with computations for a story, however simple they seem.
