Breaking Local Stories with Economic Data

Details Government data offer unparalleled opportunities to distinguish your reporting with trend stories about what’s happening in your local economy. Especially this year, with the release of the every-five-year Economic Census, journalists will have a unique opportunity to track changes in their local community from 2007 — before the recession — to 2012.

The key is to know where to look on often confusing government websites and then how to analyze the data you find. Just in time for the International Year of Statistics, this free workshop will provide you with a road map to finding and delivering at least five local enterprise stories from government data.

This workshop precedes the SABEW 50th Annual Conference.
