I want to plot a chart comparing public opinion on the death penalty with some economic indicators to look for correlations. The financial datasets are easy to find, but I am having trouble getting a time series of opinion.
Can anyone suggest anything?
Then even correalate this variables in a scatterplot.
I would suggest you would need a data set that has all this information (opinion and economic indicators) in one. I don't know where you would find such a set but once you had it the charts would be very easy to put together.

It could be that whatever prompted that decision, was also responsible for the change in public attitudes. (maybe they executed a bunch of innocent people about then..??)
