What we do

Herald Insights is a data journalism website that uses data as a source for stories. We provide our readers the ability to dig deep into data that matters to New Zealanders.

Data-driven reporting in the past has been a slow process. Now extensive open data and the ability to analyse it on personal computers gives us the opportunity to make data part of the daily news cycle.

Innovative storytelling techniques are at the heart of data journalism. Writing code and doing statistical analysis is part of our journalistic process. We will give you context behind the data and help you understand the numbers driving the news.

We want to hear your insights on the data stories we produce - what we missed, what we didn't explore, how the data connects with your life and what we should look at next.
