Best examples of data journalism and computational journalism projects around tax?


#1

I’m starting this thread for anyone who is interested in following data journalism and computational journalism projects around tax, with an initial focus on projects to come out of #PanamaPapers leak as stories unfold over the coming weeks.

For starters, here is a collection of statistical graphs from the ICIJ created by Rigoberto Carvajal, Mar Cabra, Álvaro Ortiz and Fernando Blat: http://panamapapers.icij.org/graphs/

And here are a series of accompanying network graphs showing how different figures implicated in the leak are connected through various legal entities: https://panamapapers.icij.org/the_power_players/

I’ve also started a list of investigation into corporate tax avoidance here, which we’ll be adding to as part of the Open Data for Tax Justice initiative.

Hi all,

I’ve been following the topics and data journalism projects and I know that The Guardian posted a nice visualisation on tax havens and capital flight already four years ago.

We took an alternative look to the Panama Papers from the point of view of reproducible research, frictionless data, data activism and citizen engagement. Maybe it can be interesting for you:
