The Pew Research Center has data on general internet usage and online abuse behaviors: http://www.pewinternet.org/2017/07/11/online-harassment-2017/


Online Harassment 2017 | Pew Research Center<http://www.pewinternet.org/2017/07/11/online-harassment-2017/>
Roughly four-in-ten Americans have personally experienced online harassment, and 62% consider it a major problem.

Also, a new book coming out spring called Mediating Misogyny with chapters on general population and effects on journalists.
Tracy Everbach and Jacqueline Vickery are editors.
