Survey by Yale University Project on Climate Change Communication/George Mason University Center for Climate Change Communication. Methodology: Conducted by GfK Knowledge Networks, March 7 - March 25, 2018 and based on 1,278 online (internet) interviews. Sample: National adult. The poll was fielded by GfK Knowledge Networks using its national KnowledgePanel. The KnowledgePanel is a nationally representative probability sample of the US adult population. Panelists are recruited by randomly selecting residential addresses using a process called address-based sampling (ABS). Since nearly 3-in-10 US households do not have home Internet access, respondent households who do not have Internet access or own a computer are provided Internet service and a netbook computer to ensure that panel respondents are representative of the US adult population. Unlike opt-in panels, households are not permitted to "self-select" into KnowledgePanel; nor are they allowed to participate in many surveys per week. [31115003.00041] (View Citation)
