Survey by Associated Press. Methodology: Conducted by GfK Knowledge Networks, December 12 - December 14, 2014 and based on 1,017 online 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 U.S. adult population. Panelists are recruited by randomly selecting residential addresses using a process called address-based sampling (ABS). Since nearly 3-in-10 U.S. 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 U.S. 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. [USAP.122614G.R09I] (View Citation)

This is what I would like you to indicate next. In your personal opinion, is this a matter each individual person should handle for himself primarily?--Or is it a matter voluntary agencies or community groups should handle primarily?--Or private industry or companies?--Or state and local governments?--Or is this a matter the federal government should handle primarily?)...
