Search strategies to identify a data set:
Literature search: search a database relevant to your subject area for articles that have conducted related analysis and identify the datasets they used.
Going straight to a likely source: check to see if there is a particular organization or government agency that collects the type of data that you need. Try searching their website or publications.
Data archive search: Try searching through a large data archive, such as ICPSR or Data Planet.
