Socio-economic impact of legalised gambling in South Africa


A national survey among 3 100 respondents was conducted during October and November 2005. A research instrument similar to the 2002 questionnaire was used to allow longitudinal comparisons with regard to various aspects including participation levels, impact of gambling on household welfare, propensity to gamble, household expenditure displacement, household budgetary behaviour with regard to gambling and the extent of problem gambling. However, the 2005 study was extended with a series of focus group discussions to determine the social impact of problem gambling.
