With the Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand reaching its final week and with England playing in the semi-final today, we thought it was a good time to share some findings about the impact of major sporting events.
Last week we caught up with our three stakeholder engagement groups (Academics and/or Policy, Industry and Lived Experience) to provide an update on the Gambling Survey for Great Britain (GSGB) project.
The Gambling Commission is a people-focused regulator that’s evidence-led. So we need the best data, the best research we can get, in order to do our job and make gambling safer, fairer and crime free here in Great Britain.
Ben Haden, our Director of Research and Statistics, reflects on some thought-provoking engagement at the start of the pilot phase for our new approach to collecting statistics on gambling participation and those who may experience difficulties with their gambling.
Here at the Gambling Commission, we have reached a significant milestone in our project to improve the way we collect data on adult gambling participation and prevalence of those who experience difficulties or harms through their gambling.
