Numbers are not neutral: How journalists can detect deep bias & avoid hidden traps

Numbers, like those in polling and survey audiences, population samples, and research cohorts, are not inherently objective or neutral. They are a sample of real humans and the product of myriad factors. And just because big data is big does not mean that it, or algorithms that stem from large data sets, are representative or unbiased. How do journalists fairly use numbers in reporting? What does it really mean for a sample to be representative? In what ways can reporters vet numbers quickly and reliably for potential bias?

Join the National Press Club Journalism Institute and the National Association of Science Writers for a program that will answer these questions and leave participants with new tactics to:

- Detect deep bias in numbers before they use them
- Surface hidden traps and avoid them
- Accurately represent the people and lives reflected in the data
