FiveThirtyEight: Doing data journalism the right way

As far as data journalism is concerned, there’s really one name that has shot up through the ranks in the past couple of years. That name, is FiveThirtyEight.

Whether it’s making their name with ESPN in sports, or politics, they’ve done a great job of creating compelling pieces of data journalism, like the one that I picked out for this week.

Screen Shot 2015-04-21 at 5.42.22 PMEngland’s preliminary elections are coming up later this year, and FiveThirtyEight is being creative with their pieces of data journalism, by creating maps and discussing the demographics.

FiveThirtyEight is a great source for data journalism and a unique angle on different things, not just in sports. Everything in the world now is going to start revolving around numbers and data analysis, so people are going to want to go towards this website rather than other ones in the near future.

And they’ve got a head start.
