Abstract: of Kentucky’s Survey Research Center to conduct a statewide study of Kentuckians’ lifetime gambling behaviors. The study developed a survey instrument consisting of 12 questions derived from the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition (DSM-IV) criteria for compulsive gambling. The Kentucky Survey Research Center used these questions in a random telephone survey of non-institutionalized Kentuckians 18 years of age or older. Calls were made from October 30-December 10, 2008. A total of 2,401 households were contacted. Of these, 195 were ineligible to complete the survey, 1,356 refused to participate or did not complete the survey, and 850 completed the survey. The Council of American Survey Research Organizations (CASRO) response rate was 43.5 percent. The margin of error is approximately ±3.4 percent.
