The National Lottery Commission added questions to Ipsos MORI‟s 2011-12 Young People Omnibus. The research aimed to gauge current levels of underage play, and to investigate how and where underage players buy National Lottery tickets. The survey covers 16 year olds as well as younger children, and the data can therefore be used to highlight differences in the rates and methods of playing among those legally entitled to play and underage players aged 11-15. The findings are based on data from a representative sample of 2,757 11-16 year olds attending maintained schools in England and Wales, of whom 2,531 were aged 11-15. The research was conducted in a sample of schools, with pupils filling out paper self-completion questionnaires under supervision by Ipsos MORI's interviewers.
