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. [31115003.00047] (View Citation)


There are many people in this country who live in areas and homes that are known to be especially susceptible to destruction by natural disasters such as landslides, earthquakes, hurricanes, and flooding. In general, when disasters strike these areas, do you favor, oppose, or neither favor nor oppose the state government buying these homes so residents can move to a safer area? Do you strongly favor or somewhat favor the state government buying these homes so residents can move to a safer area? Do you strongly oppose or somewhat oppose the state government buying these homes so residents can move to a safer area?

(I'd like to ask you some questions about major natural disasters. The natural disasters we're talking about are events that cause billions of dollars in damages--naturally occurring disasters such as floods, hurricanes, and earthquakes--but not criminal or terrorist disasters.) (Who should be eligible for government grants and low-interest loans after a major natural disaster? For each one, tell me whether they should or should not be eligible.)... People who chose not to buy insurance, and live in an area with a low risk of natural disaster. (Source: Public Attitude Monitor 1995, Jun, 1995)
