Raising the odds? Gambling behaviour and neighbourhood access to gambling venues in New Zealand

Abstract

This report presents the key results of a study that investigated whether people's gambling behaviour was associated with their local gambling environment. This study found that there were significant associations between gambling behaviour and neighbourhood access to gambling venues. In particular, problem gambling was found to be significantly associated with living closer to a gambling venue. These findings offer some positive ideas for possible ways for preventing and minimising gambling-related harm.
