That is kind of a big question wct. If this is part of a classroom assignment your teacher should be giving you some guidance. If your institution is a member of ICPSR, you can get lots of freebie data there; see

The web pages for each data set also often include a "related literature" section so you can see what has already been done with the data.

Another good source for freebie data is the General Social Survey. See

Some kindly authors also make their data available on the web or provide it upon request.
