For the numbers article, I found a piece about how fewer veterans are starting businesses.
The reporter talks about the percentage change of veterans that have started businesses in the last 10 years. The article also talks about the percent of veterans that use the Montgomery G.I. Bill, and how that effects the number of people who start businesses right out of the military. Finally, the article talks about the number of dollars that is available for veterans who want to start a business.
The numbers, while present in this story, are not overwhelming. The author does a great job of bringing in a lot of context and background information to the story that help make the numbers make sense. The author doesn't provide any of the raw data that leads to the percent change, but rather just provides the finished product itself. The numbers came from a study released by the Kaufman Foundation.
