Introducing the Data Center

The digital age of journalism provides readers and writers with an ever-increasing number of ways to both investigate and communicate. Usually, "new media" discussions revolve around social media outlets such as Twitter and Facebook, which have indeed revolutionized the way sources, journalists and readers receive and distribute information instantaneously.

Less popular is the discussion around how technology aids journalists in their investigations, but it's a conversation we at Digital First Media have been having for as long as I've been working here (and others have had long before then). This site is our next step in that conversation.

Welcome to the Data Center, a collaboration between Digital First Media newsrooms in the Philadelphia region, including The Mercury, The Times Herald, The Reporter, The Trentonain, The Daily Times, The Daily Local, and dozens of other publications.

Follow this blog to keep track of our ongoing projects, and browse through our section pages to find information on Census data, education reports and even your county's marriage records. We'll add new items regularly and report on these additions.

Notice something missing from our lists? Email me at, and we'll do our best to get you the information you need.
