Locating 50-State Surveys

This guide is intended to help you identify sources for precompiled 50-state surveys.

Trade Associations or Interested Organizations

A 50-state survey on your topic of interest may be published by a trade association or interested organization in the particular area you are researching.  

You can check if the American Bar Association has a 50-state survey on the topic by clicking the search icon and typing "50 state survey."  You can then narrow your search by date, publishing entity, topic, and content type. 

You can also utilize Google to see if there is a survey created by a trade association or interested organization on your topic of interest.  For example, if you are researching animal welfare law, you could search: 50 state survey animal welfare.
