Re: What is a good topic for a statistical research?

how about the Philippine economy?

That would be exciting enough to report, don't you think?

You could show the Philippine Peso exchange rate, and its relation to The rise and fall of the economy.

PS. I don't know anything about statistics, except for the fact that they use charts. Good Luck!

Re: What is a good topic for a statistical research?

How about polling a bunch of your classmates to find some cool fact like:

boys like video games more than girls.
older students hate school more.
Students who play sports get better grades.

I don't know if any of those above statements are true, but it would be kind of fun to find out (even if the info you find is only accurate for your region).

Or the weather ... get temperature charts for a city and investigate long term changes and statistical significance. This should give a clue to climate change!

Another interesting research work can be understanding your region better. In order to develop the research work you can zero down on one aspect say real-estate of the region that has helped the overall economy to grow. Probably you can use data's on real-estate for good five years and see how it has contributed to the economy. Also you can use related industry to see correlation and its impact.
