    I am in need of some raw-ish data for a Data Management 12 project.

    My final project involves taking a bunch of data and finding correlation coefficient, standard deviation etc. I chose the topic of intelligence and race. I understand that this is an incredibly controversial topic, this is one of the reasons I chose it. I will be sure to be as unbiased as humanly possible and try to consider the enormous amount of extraneous variables that would affect the results of these intelligence tests (I don't require a lecture is what I'm getting at). I don't need help as much with actual calculations, but actually finding the data to calculate. I have had no luck in finding a (free) resource that would provide some raw data for any sort of test that has anything to do with intelligence or cognitive ability. Please help me with this, otherwise I will be forced to go with some incredibly common topic like Murder vs. GDP or something.

    Thank you for reading.

    Hey FalkaineData.

    I don't think you will get this data easily if you can get it due to the controversial nature of the topic.

    Are you flexible enough to pick another kind of data set?

    The class is called Data Management. This is a Canadian class by the way, but there is probably an American equivalent.
