This dataset is a subset of the 1991 National Race and Politics Survey and
contains a list experiment with two sensitive items. The main questions
read as follows:
Now I'm going to read you four things that sometimes
make people angry or upset. After I read all (three/four), just tell me HOW
MANY of them upset you. (I don't want to know which ones, just how many.)
(1) "the federal government increasing the tax on gasoline;" (2)
"professional athletes getting million-dollar-plus salaries;" (3) "large
corporations polluting the environment;" (4) "a black family moving next
door to you."
