What Is Public Health? Occupational prestige was measured using the method of Duncan updated Stricker Census, and these categories were subsequently recoded into scores based on the average prestige ratings given those categories by a U.
Neighborhood disadvantage was measured using a method that has been used by other researchers Boardman et al. The average population of these block groups was The block-level variables used to make the disadvantage scale were: 1 the percentage of households on public assistance, 2 the percentage of families headed by a female, 3 the percentage of adults unemployed, and 4 the percentage of persons in poverty.
These percentages were standardized and averaged with equal weights. Each respondent lived in a distinct block group, so these variables were independent across respondents. For SOGUS1, variables reflecting distance to various gambling establishments were created as follows.
The addresses of several types of gambling establishments were obtained from Outcault Associates Outcault These types of establishments were: Indian casinos, non-Indian casinos, embarkation points of riverboat and cruise-ship casinos, card rooms, dog tracks, harness racing tracks, quarterhorse tracks, ordinary horse tracks, and jai alai frontons. The coordinate data were used to compute a set of proximity-to-gambling variables for each respondent. These proximity variables included radius variables e.
Distance variables were computed using a formula which takes the curvature of the earth into account. For SOGUS2, variables reflecting distance for various gambling establishments were created in-house by our research group at the Research Institute on Addictions. The latitude and longitude of gambling establishments was supplied by Casino City Press , the successor company of Outcault Associates. Proximity variables were computed using a formula which takes the curvature of the earth into account.
Because of the large number of statistical tests that were conducted, a level of. As can be seen, there are significant reductions in the percentage of respondents that gambled in the past year Among respondents who gambled at least once in the past year, there was a significant reduction in the average number of days on which they gambled Overall, it is clear that U. Our measure of the gambling quantity, the average win or loss in dollars, increased noticeably but was not statistically significant.
The remaining dependent variables in Table 2 reflect the prevalence of problem or pathological gambling. We can see that: 1 none of these differences are statistically significant, 2 roughly half increased and half decreased, and 3 total DSM plus SOGS symptoms for the two studies are virtually identical. All indications are that the prevalence of gambling pathology in the U. Table 3 compares the two surveys on the percentage of respondents who played various types of gambling in the past year.
The participation rates for six types of gambling have declined significantly, including lottery and office pools etc. Internet gambling was the only form of gambling in which the participation rate increased significantly, from 0. The left section of Table 4 compares across surveys the number of days that respondents played various types of gambling, averaged across all respondents who played that particular type.
Lottery and gambling at the track declined significantly. No type of gambling increased significantly. The right section of Table 4 compares across studies the average last win or loss in constant dollars for the various types of gambling.
This measure of gambling quantity increased significantly for office pools, bingo and sports betting. It did not decline significantly for any type of gambling. During the decade of the s, there apparently was a tendency for the frequency of gambling to decrease and for the size of bets to increase. The left section of Table 5 shows how the distribution of past-year gambling has changed between studies for various demographic groups.
Statistical significance is based on a logistic regression in which past-year gambling is the dependent variable and the demographic variables plus study SOGUS1 vs. SOGUS2 are the independent variables. The asterisks in column 4 indicate that the main effect of the demographic variable is significant at the. The distribution of past-year gambling across demographic categories is shown for the separate studies only when there is a statistically significant difference between studies, that is, when the demographic variable by survey SOGUS1 vs.
SOGUS2 interaction in the logistic regression is significant at the. Males are more likely than females to have gambled in the past year However, the main effect of age shows that there is a difference in past-year gambling percentages across age groups, and this distribution is also different between surveys. Figure 1 shows the pattern. However, the two surveys track closely for the three oldest age groups. In the age group, however, the rate of past-year gambling declined substantially The last two demographic factors, SES and neighborhood disadvantage, did not have significant main effects on past-year gambling, nor did they have significant interactions between studies.
If percentages for separate studies are included, interaction is significant at the. The middle section of Table 5 shows how the distribution of frequent gambling gambling two times a week or more has changed between studies across various demographic groups. Gender, race, age, and SES are all related to frequent gambling. Men are twice as likely to gamble frequently as women.
Blacks have the highest The rates of frequent gambling are lowest in the youngest and oldest age groups. The tendency to gamble frequently increases in the 31 to 45 age group, and declines in the older age groups. The main effect of SES is significant because of a tendency for frequent gambling to be less common in the top third of SES. The interaction between SES and survey shows how the SES effect on frequent gambling has asserted itself in recent years.
Consistent in both studies is the fact that the highest SES respondents had the lowest rate of frequent gambling. The main effect of neighborhood disadvantage is not significant, but the distribution of frequent gambling across levels of neighborhood disadvantage changed between studies. Figure 2 shows that in the survey, the rate of frequent gambling increased as neighborhoods became more disadvantaged. This effect disappeared in the more recent study. Between studies the SES effect became more pronounced, but the parallel neighborhood effect vanished.
The rightmost section of Table 5 shows how the distribution of current problem gambling three or more DSM-IV pathological gambling criteria in the past year has changed between surveys across various demographic groups.
The main effects of all five of our demographic variables are significant. Combining across the two surveys, problem gambling is over twice as common among men as among women. However, the significant interaction points to an interesting finding — in the decade of the s, the prevalence of problem gambling increased substantially among men 4.
Combining across surveys, problem gambling is most common among blacks 8. The age and SES patterns of problem gambling are clear. The prevalence of problem gambling among adults is highest in the youngest age group, and falls off dramatically with age. The prevalence of problem gambling is highest in the lowest third of SES, and falls off dramatically with increasing SES. Combining across surveys, neighborhood disadvantage shows a clear trend with higher prevalence of problem gambling in the worst neighborhoods.
The significant interaction indicates that this neighborhood effect weakened between surveys. Figure 3 shows how the problem gambling by neighborhood disadvantage curve flattened out between surveys. The first notable result from the comparison of these two surveys is that rates of pathological and problem gambling remained stable during the decade of the s. This occurred even though there was a general expansion of legal gambling and liberalization of gambling laws in the U.
In our past research Welte, Wieczorek et al. This effect was still significant even with some possible confounding variables held constant. Thus, they should be affected similarly to the nation as a whole by changes in gambling laws. Therefore, we can ascertain whether exposure to casinos increased for the specific respondents interviewed in our surveys. Thus, exposure to casinos had increased, as expected.
Based on the theory that exposure to gambling venues promotes problem gambling, one would have expected rates of problem gambling to increase between the surveys. It seemed plausible that although rates of problem gambling had been increasing early in the decade, this increase was reversed by the economic problems that started in If gambling revenues declined, as was widely reported, this would likely mean that heavy gamblers were gambling less, and therefore might be less likely to become problem or pathological gamblers.
However, an examination of the economic trends in the gambling industry indicates that important gambling industries were not seriously disrupted. Horvath and Papp found that state lotteries continued to expand their business during the recent recession. However, it is possible that the incidence of new gamblers declined during the downturn in the casino business, so that there were fewer new gamblers to be recruited into the ranks of problem gamblers a few years later, and that the progression of some veteran gamblers to problem status was slowed.
Another possible explanation is the theory of adaptation. When applied to gambling, the theory of adaptation LaPlante and Shaffer states that while initial increases in exposure to gambling venues lead to increases in rates of problem gambling, a population will eventually adapt and further negative consequences will not be forthcoming in spite of increased exposure.
This might work by various mechanisms, including waning of novelty effects, development of interventions, and a reaction to increases in harmful consequences. The apparent increase revealed in the literature in the prevalence of problem gambling during the s, combined with our results suggesting that problem gambling has held steady in the s, seems consistent with this theory.
International experience with gambling replication surveys is mostly consistent with the theory of adaptation. The evidence shows a tendency for problem gambling rates to stabilize as opportunities to gamble expand. Abbot et al. Bondolfi et al.
In Sweden, replication surveys showed that between and , past-year rates of problem gambling did not increase in spite of the fact that new forms of gambling and opportunities to gambling were introduced Abbott et al. In a slightly discordant note, replication surveys in Britain Wardle et al. However, there was no increase from to , in spite of increases in gambling availability.
It is clear that expansion of gambling exposure does not automatically lead to increases in the rates of problem gambling. Storer et al. On close examination, individual and population adaptation seem similar, as for example natural recovery might involve the inability to sustain expenditures. We are not encouraged to take an exclusive stand on either side of this issue. On the one hand, the results reported here do not support the notion that restricting access to gambling opportunities is necessary to prevent large increases in the rates of problem gambling.
On the other hand, our own previous research and the results of Storer et al. The percentage of respondents who gambled in the past year, as well as the frequency of gambling among those who did gamble, declined between surveys. An examination of these figures for individual types of gambling shows that office pools and charitable gambling, lottery play, and bingo are among the types of gambling for which past-year participation declined.
In the case of lottery, frequency of play among those who did play in the past year also declined. While gamblers sometimes can bet heavily on any of these, they are games which tend to be associated with casual low-stakes play. It is possible that one reason that problem gambling rates did not decline while gambling participation declined is that the decline in participation tended to be among the less serious gamblers, who would not have become problem gamblers in any event.
Another possibility is that the decline in gambling frequency was offset by an increase in betting quantity. We further examined the decline between surveys of the frequency of gambling, and the increase between surveys in the size of the average win or loss, in an attempt to understand whether these changes were associated with casual or serious gamblers. The overall pattern was that for heavier gamblers the frequency declined less and the quantity increased much more than for lighter gamblers.
The size of win or loss has been shown to be a strong predictor of pathological gambling Welte, Barnes et al. Nevertheless, she noted, men remained significantly more involved in gambling than women. Our results from both surveys show that rates of past-year gambling, frequency of gambling among gamblers, and rates of problem gambling are all significantly higher among men than among women. Frequent gambling and problem gambling were twice as high.
In addition, while the rate of problem gambling among men increased between surveys, the rate of problem gambling among women declined. As with numerous other gambling surveys Williams et al. Asians had a somewhat higher prevalence than whites, but lower than the other minorities. In problem gambling prevalence research, minority Asian populations have demonstrated mixed results. However, a California survey with an exceptionally large sample of Asians found that Asians had the lowest prevalence of problem gambling of any racial group, including whites Volberg et al.
In our own survey of adolescent gambling in the U. The British and Canadian results are consistent with the informal reputation of Asians as gamblers, and the U. The negative relationship between socio-economic status and gambling involvement continued during the decade and may have gotten stronger. In both surveys, the rate of problem gambling increased dramatically as SES declined.
In our past work, we speculated that gambling pathology is particularly common among lower SES Americans because some of them are motivated to gamble by the desire to improve their financial status. Our past work has also shown that frequent gambling and problem gambling were more common in disadvantaged neighborhoods, even after holding socio-economic status and race constant Barnes et al.
Between the two surveys, this effect has disappeared in the case of frequent gambling and substantially weakened in the case of problem gambling. We suspected that this phenomenon might be related to a decline in lottery gambling in disadvantaged neighborhoods. Past research has shown lottery play to be common in disadvantaged neighborhoods Barnes et al. However, in an analysis not shown in the tables, we found that eliminating lottery play from our calculation of frequent gambling did not change the pattern between surveys.
Calculating frequent gambling both with and without lottery play showed that in SOGUS1 frequent gambling was more common in disadvantaged neighborhoods, while in SOGUS2 rates of frequent gambling were about the same across the neighborhood spectrum. Decline in lottery is not the explanation; some more general phenomenon is at work. This research has some limitations.
There is a potential problem to the fact that the survey did not include a cell phone sample, while the survey did. In , it was not accepted wisdom in the survey research field that a cell phone sample was necessary, because a relatively small portion of the population was reachable only by cell phone.
By , this proportion of the population in the U. Blumberg and Luke also found that cell phone subscribers were younger and poorer than the landline phone subscribers. In our own SOGUS2, the cell phone sample is more male, younger and more racial minority than the landline sample. In an Australian study, Jackson et al. They concluded that a cell phone sample in addition to a landline sample was necessary for a gambling survey to include distinct subgroups of the population.
Therefore, we needed to include a cell phone sample in the recent survey, and we have taken measures to assure that our comparison of the two surveys is not compromised. In the second stage of weight development, described in the Methods section, we post-stratify by telephone type to make certain that cell phone users represent their correct proportion of the population in our analyses.
In addition to the matter of cell phones, the commonly recognized limitations of surveys — self-report and low completion rates — apply to this research. Also, there are possible biases introduced by the relatively low completion rates of modern surveys, because the potential respondents willing to be interviewed may be a biased sample of all U.
These limitations are less onerous when comparing two surveys, as the trends between the two, both with the same methodological limitations, should be valid as the distortions cancel out. The largest limitation of this work may be the fact that we have only two surveys. To accurately determine trends, several surveys at regular intervals would be ideal. Unusual events around the time of either study could distort our view of the trend.
That being said, one of the greatest strengths of this study is that the measures and methodology used for both surveys was the same. This prevented any differences in measures or method adding to the error or bias in the results. The only difference between the two surveys is that a cell-phone sample was used in addition to the landline sample at the time of the second survey.
Adding a cell-phone sample for the second survey assured that we would have access to the growing number of households and individuals with cell-phone-only accessibility. This is important because there are demographic differences between cell phone and landline populations. The authors declare that they have no conflict of interest. John W.

Probably the most glaring revelation to be had from gambling addiction statistics lies in the consequences that result when gambling disorders go untreated.
As with all types of data, certain trends or patterns of behavior start to surface within a given population. Gambling addiction statistics are no different. Some of the more prevalent gambling trends show:. As far as gambling and criminal activity goes, gambling addiction statistics reveal a direct correlation between the severity of a gambling addiction and the likelihood of committing crimes. Rates of gambling addiction for criminal offenders far exceed rates found among non-offenders.
On average, an estimated 50 percent of those affected by gambling problems commit crimes in order to support their addiction. Gambling addiction statistics show people between the ages 20 and 30 have the highest rates of problem gambling. People affected by post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD live with high levels of stress and anxiety on a daily basis. Gambling addiction statistics show high rates of gambling addiction among PTSD sufferers.
As addictions, in general, alter brain chemical functions in destructive ways, people struggling with gambling addiction have a higher likelihood of developing mental disorders.
