Many data journalists report information collected from people who are Western, Educated, Industrialised, Rich and Democratic, but this "WEIRD" demographic does not represent the majority of people in the world. AfroBarometer collects data from 33 different countries on the African continent, and makes it openly available. Your task is to create a tool that maps datasets from AfroBarometer onto key current issues in the UK news media, helping readers in this country get a better global perspective.
