Polling methodology: The survey was conducted by pollsters during the two-day period of April 22–23 over the telephone across the nation on a computer-aided random digit sampling (RDS) basis. The survey excluded telephone numbers in municipalities designated as “difficult-to-return” zones due to the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident. A total of 1,599 households with one or more persons age 18 or over were sampled. Responses were obtained from 1,011 persons (63%).
