This is a new blog, founded in January 2017, for non-partisan data journalism.  New content is continually being researched and written, so please check back often.  We are not affiliated with any organization, and we do not accept funding from any source.

We research topics that seem interesting, without knowing in advance how the data will turn out, and we publish the results no matter what we find.  Sometimes the facts surrounding a given topic may happen to be more favorable to one party or another, but our aggregate body of work will continue to show that we do not play favorites.

Above all, our goal is to present verifiable, carefully researched data on newsworthy topics that have not yet been adequately explored by other media outlets.  See our pinned post on “Our mission and code of ethics” for more information.
