The Data Journalism discipline is all about telling interesting and important stories with a data focused approach. Data Journalism has come about naturally with more information becoming available as data. A story may be about the data or informed by data.
Data journalism is a type of journalism reflecting the increased role that numerical data is used in the production and distribution of information in the digital era. It reflects the increased interaction between content producers (journalist) and several other fields such as design, computer science and statistics.
