Working with data

Data Journalism Handbook

Are you into data journalism? Or does your job require you to handle and interpret lots and lots of data? Here’s a piece of good news. The book, Data Journalism Handbook, is now available online – for free, under a Creative Commons Attribution ShareALike license.

The authors hope to foster data literacy, which they define as “the ability to consume for knowledge, produce coherently and think critically about data. It includes statistical literacy but also understanding how to work with large data sets, how they were produced, how to correct various data sets and how to interpret them.”

I used to work for IBON Foundation in Manila and I’m sure this is one book that can definitely benefit the research institution’s present crop of researchers and writers, who, in the digital age, are always faced with the so-called information overload.
