Analysis: CAR used in reporting increasing poverty rates in students in Florida

| No Comments

The story about rising poverty in Florida's student population reported by the Florida Center for Investigate Reporting demonstrated computer-assisted reporting. The story analyzed research done by the American Psychological Association "relating to poverty rates, homeless students and subsidized meals for all school districts," and interviewed different youth advocacy groups, homeless liaison, families and school officials based on the observations from the report. Mathematical charts are used in this reporting. To help readers to visualize the situation in Florida, the story included various mathematical graphs summarizing poverty rates in school-aged children, growing number of homeless children in Florida and increasing percent of students eligible for free/reduced lunches.
