The KDMC Census Workshop provided valuable background for Syracuse University's 2011 News21 project, funded by the Carnegie-Knight Initiative. We analyzed data to find an American community that experience significant demographic change in the past decade. We sent eleven students to Eastern Pennsylvania's Lehigh Valley, an old white steel town on the way to becoming majority Hispanic. In addition to our own site, student were published in USA Today (print and online); TheAtlantic.com; and the Eastern Pennsylvania Business Journal.
Fellows in KDMC training programs go on to produce media- and technology-rich stories at their home publications.
