Whitehall Monitor is the Institute for Government’s data journalism project. We visualise and analyse data published by and about government to build up a picture (literally) of the size, shape and performance of government in the UK.
We publish an annual report, regular blogposts and occasional special reports, and live-blogging government reshuffles has recently become a speciality (which we did over three full days in May 2015). We also publish the data underlying our research (which you can find via the links on the left hand side), and aim to improve the way government uses and publishes data.
