Okay Im and IB student and their is something we have to do called an Internal Investigation. Mine is based on a database. The correlation between lung cancer and pollution for each country. The problem is that the data for air pollution is given for each city in the country from the WHO. I will attach an example. So if I put everything as Raw data, it would be too much, but if I average out the values for all the cities to represent one country, would it still be considered raw data? I'm doing it for European countries only so please if someone has any tips on this matter.

Hey there
I've moved your thread into international baccalaureate so you may get a hand with this.
What sort of subject is this in? You may have more luck checking out maths, science and technology academic help or geography and earth sciences study help
Best of luck with this,
Cheese :bump:

Could you further limit your investigation? Just comparing lung cancer and pollution is quite vague. You could pick fewer countries. I'd imagine there's a lot of deviation between cities so I'm not confident averaging all cities for each country would give you the most accurate data. You could search for a cut-off value for population/pollution and then average and further compare areas with a high population/pollution vs areas with a low population/pollution?
