Philip Meyer: Reporter Who Pioneered Date-Driven Journalism

From a New York Times obit by Clay Risen headlined “Philip Meyer, Reporter Who Pioneered Date-Driven Journalism, Dies at 93”:

Philip Meyer, a former reporter who pioneered new ways to incorporate data, quantitative methods and computers into investigative journalism, died at his home in Carrboro, N.C., a suburb of Chapel Hill.

With a career spanning the latter half of the 20th century and several years into the 21st, Mr. Meyer was at the center of a revolution within the craft and business of journalism — a revolution that, to a large degree, he helped shape.
