Hi everyone. We’re The Economist’s data team. We gather, analyse and visualise data for The Economist and produce data-driven journalism. Over the past year we’ve created many coronavirus trackers, a risk estimator and most recently an excess-mortality model, and we’ve seen the interest in our work skyrocket. We can answer questions about anything relating to data journalism at The Economist. All of our work can be found on the website here or you can follow us on Twitter for updates. For more exclusive insights, sign up for our free weekly newsletter. Proof: https://twitter.com/ECONdailycharts/status/1394666569599438851?s=20
