Daily edition

Numlock News is a free daily newsletter by Walt Hickey that highlights the context and importance of the numbers you read about in the news.

It’s a levelheaded look at the fascinating reality obscured by esoteric statistics, intimidating jargon and overcomplicated narratives. It’s a conversational newsletter for folks who are interested in data but are a little uncertain about how these numbers affect their lives.

Numlock News brings data journalism down to earth. If you like reading about what digits are significant, you’ll love this.
