The Data Team at El Confidencial
DataBeers Madrid, June 2016
"Data journalism is the process of
creating a story that could not have
been done without a computer".
Just like journalists like to describe their work as “giving a voice to the voiceless”, datajournalism could be the act of measuring the unmeasured.
By measuring a problem, a datajournalism team transforms it from a series of stories in an issue that can be followed in time and rigorously assessed.
The methodology chosen for a data collection can have tremendous consequences on the results.
