You can review SearchWorks, Stanford's library catalog, to identify whether there might be a 50-state survey on your topic of interest. 

You can conduct an advanced search to search for your topic with the words "survey" and "state" in the title field.  

For example, you can conduct a title search for: survey AND state AND "media privacy"

Then, you can view the results.
