Young People and Gambling

Since 2011 we have undertaken the Young People and Gambling Survey, a survey of 11-16 year olds across Great Britain which is completed by pupils in secondary state schools.

The survey is designed to understand young people’s attitudes towards gambling and their participation in different types of gambling activities. Data is collected on forms of gambling and gambling style games that children and young people can legally take part in along with gambling on age restricted products.

The following data collections are available on the UK Data Service:
