A reader asks for help finding a particular sort of survey data:
Specifically, I need datasets that ask respondents whether they have experienced X thing and also ask whether they know someone who has experienced X thing. So, for example: Q1: Have you ever been abducted by aliens? Q2: Do you know anyone who has been abducted by aliens?…any substantive issue will do.
Is anyone familiar with such a dataset, preferably from the U.S. within the last 25 years? Or, alternatively, do you have any suggestions on how to search for a type of question, as opposed to a variable name?
