About

The New York World focuses on producing data-driven investigative projects.

There’s an increasing interest in data journalism and how news organizations can analyze data to find stories that would otherwise go unnoticed. The New York World seeks to tap new data sources and utilize innovative techniques, often in partnership with other news organizations, to find stories that deepen public understanding of the issues facing New York.

The New York World is published by Columbia Journalism School, and named for school founder Joseph Pulitzer’s groundbreaking newspaper of the same name. Our reporters are graduates of the Journalism School, on year long post-graduate appointments.

The New York World was inspired in part by News 21, a nationwide effort to teach, challenge, and prepare the next generation of news industry leaders. Columbia’s Journalism School was one of twelve universities that participated in News21. News21 was funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and the Carnegie Corporation as part of the Carnegie-Knight Initiative on Journalism Education.
