Data Journalism. Work session (IV)

Data for evaluating and mapping

Debate

In this session work with data will be explained from different perspectives. Firstly, in the presentation of cases, we will have the opportunity to find out how public policies are evaluated and we will debate whether the results compensate the time and expense invested. We will also learn how European aid is combined with the quest for profits among multinational oil companies in Kenia. In the second part, there will be a workshop on data visualisation using VISUAL, an Idescat tool that may greatly facilitate the journalist’s work.


5.00-6.00 p.m. // PRESENTATION OF CASES: 'Ivàlua: Evaluating the impact of public policies’ with David Casado and Federico Todeschini and 'Land Quest: relations between cooperation and multinationals in Kenya' with Eduard Martin Borregón.


Ivàlua (Catalan Institute for Public Policy Evaluation) is a public consortium whose mission is the promotion of the evaluation of public policies and programmes of the third sector in order to improve their design and effectiveness. It has participated in the evaluation of the active policies of the Catalonia Employment Service and the evaluation of the plans of the Department of Education.


Through data journalism, it is possible to map flows of money of the private sector and of cooperation, helping to visualise the relationships between people, data and development policies. The investigation project Land Quest explains the dynamics in Kenya, a country where two interests are in confrontation: European aid and the quest for profits by the great oil multinationals.


6.15 to 8.00 p.m. // Workshop 'Visual: the Idescat data visualisation solution' with Xavier Badosa (IdesCat)


Visual is the open code solution developed by the Institute of Statistics of Catalonia (Idescat) to complement its tables of statistical results with graphs and maps. The session will describe its characteristics and will show how to install this solution and use it with real statistical data.
