Abstract: This report presents the results of the second survey of gambling and problem gambling among adolescents in Oregon. The main purpose of this study was to assess the extent of gambling and problem gambling among adolescents in Oregon. Another important purpose of this study was to examine the interplay between parental and adolescent gambling attitudes and involvement in predicting youth gambling participation and problems. The study took advantage of the need to obtain informed consent from a parent or guardian before speaking with an adolescent in the household to complete an assessment of the parent or guardian’s gambling attitudes, behavior and knowledge. A sample of 1,555 matched pairs of Oregon parents and adolescents aged 12 to 17 was interviewed between May and August, 2007. The results of this study are intended to assist in the further development and refinement of services in Oregon for youth with gambling problems and their families.
