This survey is realised by the European Journalism Centre (EJC), in collaboration with Mirko Lorenz (Deutsche Welle) *
Increasingly, governments, international agencies and organisations such as the Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD) and the World Bank, are publishing online collections of freely available public data. Developing the know-how to use the available data more effectively, to understand it, to communicate and generate stories based on it by using free and open tools for data analysis and visualisation, could be a huge opportunity to breathe new life into journalism. The aim of this survey is to gather the opinion of journalists on this emerging field and understand what the training needs are.
This survey has 16 questions. Answering them will take you no more than 10 minutes. The results will be made freely available and will help us design data journalism trainings that fit real needs. To thank the participating journalists for taking part in this survey, we will award one of them an Amazon voucher of Euro 100.
