How often does The Guardian link out to data sources?
Testing a hunch about how often The Guardian links to the ONS was a chance to explore good data journalism practice, revisit some Python and play with the excellent Guardian API. But what did I find out? — When introducing data (and data-driven journalism) to students I always include The Office of National Statistics (ONS) as a go-to source. It's a really accessible gateway to the ‘low hanging fruit’ of government data sources as well as their own data gathering and analysis.
