The Data Driven Journalism site has republished a great section from the useful Data Journalism Handbook. The section, which aims to be a “five minute field guide” to data-hunting, looks at global sources where journalists can find data and also offers advice on how to search for specific data.
The authors of the section include: Brian Boyer, Chicago Tribune; John Keefe, WNYC; Friedrich Lindenberg, Open Knowledge Foundation; Jane Park, Creative Commons; Chrys Wu, Hacks/Hackers.
Here is a link to the specific chapter this section can be found in online.
