    • What exactly are you looking for?
      If you just want to see analysis of those surveys, that can be found in the main text of the article. If you are wanting to take a closer look at the questions asked in those surveys, we present that information in the appendix to the article. If you are looking for the data itself, it is available in the replication materials (link provided on this page). Does that answer your question?
