Questionnaire completion times

All data tables are provided in Statistics on gambling participation – Year 1 (2023), Wave 1 .

The aim was for the online questionnaire to take an average of 20 minutes to complete. The mean time taken was shorter than this at 18 minutes: 22 minutes for those who had gambled in the last 4 weeks and 14 minutes for those who had not gambled in the last 4 weeks. The median time taken was lower than the mean: 14 minutes for all participants: 16 minutes for those who had gambled in the last 4 weeks and 11 minutes for those who had not gambled in the last 4 weeks3 as shown in Table A.8: Online questionnaire completion time, by gambling status.
