Stats + Stories: Reporting on the Census
WYSO is partnering with Stats and Stories, a podcast produced at Miami University.
For the last few years Stats and Stories has brought you interviews with researchers focused on the ins and outs of the 2020 census. We have talked with the former director of the US Census Bureau, John Thompson, about what it takes to pull the census off, as well as organizers of Newscounts, a project designed to improve the reporting on the U.S. census. Reporting on the census is the focus of this episode of Stats and Stories, where we explore the statistics behind the stories and the stories behind the statistics. Rosemary Pennington is joined in the studio are regular panelists John Bailer, Chair of Miami's Statistics Department and Richard Campbell former Chair of Media, Journalism, and Film. Their guest NPR's Hansi Lo Wong. Wong "reports on the people, power and money behind the 2020 census," and in 2019 he won the ASA's Excellence in Statistical Reporting Award for his coverage of the census and the debate around the possible inclusion of a citizenship question.
Stats and Stories is a partnership between Miami University's Departments of Statistics and Media, Journalism and Film and the American Statistical Association.
