The story I'm using for the numbers analysis is from The Wall Street Journal. It's a story on how businesses are becoming more optimistic in the UK.
This story uses numbers in a few different ways. First it lets the reader know how many companies were a part of the survey, then it gives some percentages on how certain questions were answered. The story also gives some background information by using some GDP percentages.
The numbers are straight forward and easy to understand. The surveys are cited and easily Identifiable. I'm not sure if there has been any number crunching since some surveys come with an analysis and break down the numbers into more understandable figures, which the article might have used.
