FactCheckNI wants to explore the role that good data has in telling – or at least enhancing – a regular news story, and the benefit to fact checkers of being able to work closely with statutory statistical agencies. This idea was crystallised by the Northern Ireland Statistic Research Agency (NISRA) working with broadcast media outlets to ensure official statistics were being reported accurately during the UK General Election in December 2019. Since then, statistics have become even more important and their use even more prevalent during the coronavirus pandemic.
