Abstract: This study, conducted in the summer and fall of 2000, was the third in a series of four epidemiological studies commissioned by the Oregon Gambling Addiction Treatment Foundation (OGATF) since it’s founding in 1997. The goal of the first three studies was to establish empirical evidence of gambling behaviors among Oregonians and to estimate the rates of disordered gambling in the state. The objective in providing this empirical evidence was envisioned as creating impetus for statewide, data-based strategic planning to better ensure adequate allocation of resources for prevention, identification, referral, and treatment of disordered gamblers and their families. The fourth study, commissioned simultaneously with this study, was a replication of the original adult prevalence study.
