List of gambling activities
The survey contained four questions which were designed to establish active involvement in gambling and gambling experiences among young people during the past seven days, four weeks, 12 months and more than 12 months ago.
All young people were asked whether they had ever participated in any gambling activities shown on a list. For each activity they had ever participated in, they were then asked when they did so, whether they had spent their own money on it and when they last spent their own money.
The list of gambling activities which formed the basis of the gambling prevalence questions is shown as follows in Table A.10: List of gambling activities.
