National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms

Range of measures being taken in GM to improve our knowledge of gambling harms in the region including ascertaining industry data, surveying the school age and university populations and understanding the demographics and outcomes of those who have and haven’t attended one of the treatment providers in the region.

Updates

April 2021

The local gambling survey was deemed too expensive to administer therefore we are currently seeking alternative sources of data.

We are currently gathering the following data:

  • prevalence of gambling disorder in GM
  • qualitative insights to describe the impact of gambling disorder
  • methodologies to support estimating social cost of gambling

We are awaiting Gambling Commission support to facilitate access to industry data.
