Nonprofit News Outlets

Nonprofit news sites are cropping up around the U.S., often with the mission of filling in gaps left by cutbacks in traditional journalism. Pew Research Center identified 172 digital nonprofit outlets launched between 1987 and 2012, and audited each site for a number of characteristics including location, geographic and topical focus, launch date and fiscal arrangement. Those characteristics are displayed below in the map and interactive database. You can also read the full report, which includes a detailed survey about their economic health.
