Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
This is a dataset of fact-checking worldwide initiatives after checking the last activity of each site from 2 databases: Duke Reporters' Lab and the International Fact-Checking Network at Poynter Institute. We obtained that there are 135 platforms with activity in the last 3 months. This is the sample used for different research works from the Novos Medios research group at the University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain).
