Just released our first ever ranking of timeshare resorts based on actual resales. Most other rankings out there are based on rental demand, certainly a valid measure of accommodations, but actual resale values are a better metric to guide pricing, selling and buying decisions pertaining to real estate ownership of timeshare on the secondary market. Disney, Marriott and Hilton are the top ranked brands in the Top 25.

Consider four examples:
A financial journalist cites changes in price-to-earning ratios in stocks over time during a radio appearance.
A sports journalist adds a table that illustrates the on-base percentages of this year’s star rookie baseball players.
A technology journalist creates a graph comparing how many units of competing smartphones have been sold in the last business quarter.
A team of news developers builds an interactive website that helps parents find nearby playgrounds that are accessible to all children and adds data about it to a public data set.

In each case, journalists working with data must be conscious about its source, the context for its creation, and its relationship to the stories they’re telling. 

“Data journalism is the practice of finding stories in numbers and using numbers to tell stories,” said Meredith Broussard, an assistant professor of journalism at Temple University.
