A rather half-fledged answer but here goes: Check out https://ratings.fide.com/download.phtml. Download the data files for each month from the archive and parse them into a single database or dataframe.

My pet theory is that players in isolated communities (e.g. from different eras, or from one platform to another) can be compared by considering the probability of a draw. We see in high level play that draws are quite common, with more than half the games ending in a draw. High skill players are less likely to make mistakes that lead to a loss. In my study ...

My research tells me, that FIDE has only started rating players from 1970/71 on.[1] Background Knowledge There are multiple databases listing players, for example OlympBase, which contains the ratings of all (?) FIDE-registered players from 1971-2001, after which year, one can consult the current FIDE-list (which doesn't store ratings before then, apparently)...

With opening theory repertoires aficionados, there is the question of how well distributed have past games been in terms of positions explored. So I you are ...

I wrote some queries against the database I constructed from the FIDE downloadable data, for post 2001, and Olimpbase for pre 2001. I looked at all players with a date of birth year who reached a standard rating of 2200 or above and asked SQL Server to calculate the age at which they achieved their maximum rating and then asked for mean and standard ...
