Abstract: This study examined the prevalence of gambling and gambling-related problems among youth in Manitoba. A total of 1,000 youth between the ages of 12 and 17 years were interviewed by telephone between January 13 and March 4, 1999. The survey consisted of the South Oaks Gambling Screen Revised Adolescent (SOGS-RA) as well as various questions relating to demographic, social, and familial dimensions. Results indicated that 8% of youths were classified as at-risk for problems and 3% were classified as having a gambling problem. It was also found that these youth are not accessing formal sources of assistance for concerns with gambling. Recommendations are made concerning educating youth on gambling and future research.
