# Math IA help Watch

1. Heey!

Well, I am working on my Math IA right now and need some help
I was planning to do it on birthrate and illiteracy in different countries. Since I should do more than one calculation I dont really know what to add to use more than checking if the correlation is positive or negative. How could I use the CHi-Square testing? I mean, what could I use as data?
I am really desperate because all the ideas I had got rejected. Thanks

Do you have a source of data? Table of birthrates and illiteracy rates in different countries, for instance?
5. Sure; I am using the factbook data

That's a bit less specific than I was thinking - do you have it in a spreadsheet or something? (I'm not asking for the data, by the way - it's just that everything is easier when you have it all laid down formally.)
