As you will have noticed, a large part of this blog so far has been looking at various numbers and providing analysis.
This often requires quite a bit of work beforehand; pulling numbers from various sources and manipulating the structures so that it makes some sense. I’m often left with a nice spreadsheet ready to make graphs off.
I’ve had a few requests for some of the numbers behind my graphs. Knowing how hard it can be to get some of this information, I thought I’d follow the example of The Guardian, and where possible provide the background dataset I’ve used.
From now on I intend to not only provide a link to the data with any analysis I provide, but I’ll also link to them on my new Data page. Hopefully someone will find it helpful!
