The New Zealand national survey of problem and pathological gambling.
In New Zealand, awareness of gambling-related problems has increased in association with the legalization of new forms of gambling.
This paper presents the methods and selected results from a national survey of gambling and problem gambling completed in New Zealand in 1991.
While the primary aim of the study was to determine the extent of problem gambling in New Zealand, the study included a second phase intended to assess the validity and reliability of the widely-used South Oaks Gambling Screen as well as to examine other aspects of problematic involvement in gambling.
The results of the two-phase study in New Zealand show that problem gamblers in different countries are remarkably similar in demographic terms as well as with regard to other risk factors associated with problematic gambling involvement.
The New Zealand study of problem gambling points the way toward important research topics that will require further exploration in the future.
