More people in Scotland are gambling but the number of problem gamblers has decreased over the past year, according to a new report published by the Scottish Government.
Published this week, the Scottish Health Survey 2015 reveals that overall gambling participation has increased from 65% in 2014 to 67.8% in 2015.
The survey also shows that 0.7% of those surveyed were identified as problem gamblers – this compares with 0.8% in 2014.
James Green, Commission programme director for evidence and analysis, said: “Along with the Welsh Health Survey which we published yesterday and the England Health Survey, the Scottish Health Survey will be an invaluable addition to our combined report on gambling due next spring.”
