As Help Me Investigate starts to plan new investigations in 2014, it’s a good time to look back at what we’ve been up to over the last year across the four sites (not including this blog). It’s easy to forget how much you do in a year – thanks to the many contributors who made everything below happen. As always, we’ve learned a lot and hit the new year wiser.
As well as new reports the section will also publish the numbers behind stories in the newspaper and sister title The Birmingham Post, as well as wider statistics around the West Midlands region.
Anyone can contribute to the site, including Help Me Investigate users. It is hoped the project will stimulate more work on data projects in the region, and more opportunities for journalistic scrutiny.
