Where politics is personal not partisan

Google and the Flint Water Crisis

The Internet has become so central to the lives of many people around the world. Not only are more and more people using online services for news coverage, but many are also using the Internet as a tool for research and information. The Pew Research Center has produced data that reveals the volume of people from Flint, Michigan who were utilizing the Internet to research issues relating to their local water supply, prior to the government officially recognizing the emergency, and before reports of the dangerous situation became widespread news. The study was conducted through Google search data (anonymized) from the period Jan. 5, 2014, to July 2, 2016.
