Since the Panama Papers investigation broke in April 2016, journalists have continued to dig into the data, finding and reporting stories relevant to their communities.
The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) has been making data from its various investigations – including the most recent one called the Paradise Papers – available to journalists and members of the public in the Offshore Leaks Database.
In this article on the ICIJ blog, data journalist and researcher Cecile S. Gallego highlights the various ways you can search the database by location if you are focusing on a specific country. You can focus on a specific jurisdiction for example, or get started by looking for directors and shareholders of offshore companies connected to your country.
The blog post is the first in a series of three articles – the second part focuses on exploring networks and entity metadata in the Offshore Leaks Database, so make sure to bookmark the link and check back soon for the third instalment.
