I’m trying to study for my Writing course and I need some help to understand this question.
I want you to take some time and find a news article that presents some sort of data (it can be about anything, though I’d recommend you take the topic you’re interested in and use that). Post a link to that article and share with your classmates the specific data point they present and post about the following:
- In this data they present, do they give you much information on where they got it? Did they explain anything in terms of the data collection strategy or the data analysis?
- Do you trust this data, why or why not? This is the most important aspect. Really use this reflect upon the points above and the provided links because this is a really big component of our work as consumers of data.
