What data you should collect
These principles set out what data needs to be fed into the impact evaluation to ensure it is robust:
Management information data (where available):
- number of individuals registered on the scheme
- individual’s use of multiple MOSE schemes
- number of individuals who have returned to gambling following MOSES period
- number of breaches of MOSES (broken down before and after gambling if possible).
Data from scheme users:
- why did they sign up to MOSES?
- what would they have done if MOSES was not available?
- changes to behaviour since signing up and impact of these changes
- assessment of problem gambling status – ideally via the full PGSI screen but via the PGSI mini-screen if this is not practical
- longitudinal assessment of changes in impact on the scheme user over time where the sample size allows for this to be done effectively (confirming at each stage that the individual is prepared to be contacted).
