Abstract: The following report presents the results of a survey conducted by Ipsos-Reid and Gemini Research to estimate the number of individuals in British Columbia who are experiencing difficulties controlling their involvement in gambling, as well as to provide information about the demographic characteristics of such individuals. The survey was commissioned by the Province of British Columbia through an RFP process. The main purpose of the 2002 survey is to assist the Province in its efforts to help individuals and groups affected by this disorder. The survey results are based on telephone interviews with a representative sample of 2,500 adult (18+) British Columbians. The interviews were conducted by Ipsos-Reid between November 12th and December 14th, 2002. All data have been weighted to accurately reflect the actual age, gender and regional distribution of adult British Columbians, according to 2001 census figures. The margin of error for the total sample of 2,500 interviews is ±2.0 percent, 95 times out of 100.
