Get a first look at the News Nerd SurveySuggest edits
Over 600 journalists participated in Open News’ 2022 News Nerd Survey, which looks at how the community of news developers, designers, editors, data analysts and product folks is faring. Though the full results will be released sometime in 2023, Open News compiled some early takeaways from the survey results.
The European Journalism Centre is also collecting insights on the community in its State of Data Journalism Survey that’s open through December 31, and available to take in English, Spanish, Arabic and Italian.
