Assessment of the social impacts of gambling in New Zealand


This research was funded by the Ministry of Health. The objectives of this survey were to provide quantitative measures of the impacts of gambling from a representative sample of New Zealanders aged 15 to 80 years (to provide information at the individual level and, allow for aggregation, at the societal level). The survey collected quantitative measures which assessed the negative and positive impacts of gambling experienced by the gambler and by significant others (such as family and friends). The survey collected data on the impacts of gambling from three different ethnic groups within New Zealand; specifically Maori, Pacific peoples and Chinese/ Korean peoples.
