The State of Data Journalism 2021


The State of Data Journalism 2021

In November and December 2021, we surveyed over 1500 people involved in data journalism worldwide in what we believe is the biggest effort to measure the state of data journalism to date. The results provide an excellent overview of the various aspects of the field: the community’s demographics, the skills and tools, and the impact of the pandemic.

The State of Data Journalism 2021 Survey comprised a total of 63 questions and had 1594 respondents, of which 1285 were used for the analysis. The survey was organised in several sections, ranging from demographics to work characteristics, challenges and opportunities, and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on data journalism. It was available in four languages: English, Italian, Arabic, and Spanish.
