What’s the global data journalism community tweeting about this week?


Our NodeXL #ddj mapping from January 7 to 13, 2019 finds @SZ‘s analysis revealing how children’s books perpetuate gender stereotypes, @A24COM mapping the hottest crime spots in Buenos Aires, @dw_akademie offering data journalism fellowships, and awards to win from @WorldGovSummit and @GENinnovate‘s Data Journalism Awards.

Pirates for Boys, Princesses for Girls

An amazing data analysis of children’s literature by Süddeutsche Zeitung reveals that they are full of gender stereotypes. Keywords such as princess, magic, rainbow and unicorn were typically found in books for girls while boys’ books had keywords such as treasure, captain and adventure. More often than not, male protagonists in the books had more relation to “travel” while female protagonists were linked to “falling in love.” (In German.)

Mapping Buenos Aires’ Crime Hotspots

A24.com mapped crime incidents in Buenos Aires, Argentina, including thefts, robberies and intentional homicides. In 2016 and 2017, the government recorded 71,226 robberies, 46,178 thefts and 290 murders. The greatest number of crimes happened between 6pm and 10pm. (In Spanish.)
