Fulbright in Portugal

Steve Doig in Lisbon August-December 2010

Um…dois…tres…

Aside from enjoying Lisbon, I’m also planning for my Fulbright work here. For one, I’ve arranged a briefing soon from the Instituto Nacional de Estatistica, the national statistics office of Portugal. The INE is gearing up to conduct the country’s latest decennial census starting early next year. I’m a big believer that reporters should make good use of census data as a way of exploring stories about growth and demographic change. Among other topics, I intend to teach my UNL students how to find stories in the INE’s data-rich website. The INE press office was gracious enough to agree to help me understand how to navigate to the good stuff.
