Participation and the prevalence of problem gambling

Since we consulted on proposals to improve the way we collect data on adult gambling participation and the impact of gambling in 2020 we have developed a new methodology and approach to collecting this data.

The development stage included a pilot study and experimental phases alongside stakeholder engagement. In addition, the gambling activities we ask about in the survey have also been updated to reflect the current gambling landscape, meaning the data we collect is representative of gambling that is available today.

We have now concluded the development of the Gambling Survey for Great Britain, and moving forward this will be the source of our official statistics on gambling behaviours in Great Britain.

Our Gambling Survey for Great Britain page contains further information on the survey and all of the latest releases.

Visit the development of the Gambling Survey for Great Britain for a timeline on how we developed the survey.
