There was widespread agreement amongst survey respondents and Engagement Panel members that they would like the future survey to:

  • enable more granular level of analysis i.e. by region or by product which would require a larger sample size
  • enable further measurement of gambling behaviours i.e. time, money spent, frequency by gambling product
  • include a measure of harms, both to self and to others, albeit with some disagreement on how this should be done
  • provide a better understanding of mode of gambling
  • provide improved access to the data and better reporting.

There were more diverse opinions on:

  • specific gambling activity descriptions
  • which problem gambling screen(s) to use to measure problem gambling
  • the time frame the survey should use to ask about people‚Äôs participation in gambling e.g. past 4 weeks and / or the past 12 months.
