Abstract: The need for better information about gambling, both for the purpose of formulating policy and as a preliminary to examining future research requirements, suggested that a review of the research literature should be undertaken. The review has concentrated upon three main areas of enquiry: i. an examination of the economic and social significance of gambling and of the evidence concerning the existence, nature and extent of any adverse consequences; ii. a review of research to discover which factors determine, (a) the initial decision to gamble, and (b) continuous gambling behaviour; iii. a discussion of the implications of the research findings and other information reviewed, for the regulation of gambling, for the formulation of policy, and for future research requirements.
