(COVID) source shout-out: Data Is Plural

This week, I want to give a shout-out to Data Is Plural: a newsletter by Jeremy Singer-Vine, the data editor at BuzzFeed News. Every Wednesday, Singer-Vine sends out links to and notes on a few interesting datasets, ranging from toxic pollution to movie script analysis.

While this is not a COVID-specific source, the newsletter has frequently featured COVID-related datasets in the past two years—and I have occasionally pulled from it for my own featured sources section. I definitely recommend signing up for it, if you aren’t on the list already.

Also, I got to hear Singer-Vine talk about his data editing philosophy at a training session yesterday, which was pretty cool. It was the first and only time I’ve ever heard someone read a Borges short story during a journalism webinar.
