Gathering data about your sources isn’t that helpful if you can’t also use it in easy and meaningful ways.
Source Matters provides dashboards that automatically highlight some data insights, to help you see what to pay attention to.
They also make it easy for anyone in your newsroom to see which types of people you quote in stories, how that varies for certain topics or authors, and the trends over time.
And you’ll see more advanced breakdowns of how identity intersections in your data — such as how race overlaps with gender among your sources.
Source Matters dashboards can also tell you which sources you quote most often, and help you spot patterns. Our goal is to help you spend less time trying to get or understand data, so you have more time to learn from it and reflect on what changes you could make.
