This dataset contains coded information from an analysis of articles about water gathered from two newspapers in Utah. Articles from the Salt Lake Tribune were assessed from 2012 through 2015 and articles from the Logan Herald Journal were assessed from 2012 through 2016). Articles were gathered by searching on line newspaper databases for articles using the keyword "water". After being sorted for relevance, articles with primary focus on water were coded for content and journalistic parameters using an online survey template developed within Qualtrics software. Intercoder reliability was established among the coding team.
