A data journalist uses numerical data to impart information. Data journalism involves carrying out research, conducting surveys and being aware of and staying up to date with studies in science, technology, politics, public interest, academia and culture, as well as identifying and interpreting trends and patterns within that data and, ultimately, conveying insights and information to a readership. The role is essential to understanding and clarifying contemporary issues based on objective data and number-based facts.
