About Sanne Blauw
Sanne Blauw is numeracy correspondent for De Correspondent, the Dutch online member-funded journalism platform which focuses on background, analysis and investigative reporting. She writes about bad statistics in the news, number fetishism, and what she calls the current “dictatorship of numbers”. Her articles cover topics such as happiness, poverty, migration, and election polls. Blauw has a background in econometrics. In 2014, she received her Ph.D. in Econometrics from the Erasmus University Rotterdam, for her thesis “Well-to-do or doing well? Empirical studies of wellbeing and development.”
