NULab Core Faculty Member and journalism professor John Wihbey coauthored a piece for The Washington Post with fellow journalism professor Mike Beaudet and Pedro Miguel Cruz, assistant professor of information visualization. In the piece, they detail the methodology and findings from their State Financial Disclosure Project, which is a collaboration between Northeastern’s School of Journalism and Department of Art + Design.

Of their findings, they write, “We found that state requirements vary widely. When we reviewed the forms side-by-side and scored them on fixed criteria, we found that about 80 percent of states required little transparency, and few require enough to inform the public.”
