Abstract: This report presents the results of a survey regarding the nature and extent of gambling and gambling problems in Ontario. The objectives of this study were to determine the prevalence of gambling and problem gambling, to describe the characteristics of individuals experiencing gambling-related problems, and to compare trends with the 2001 Ontario gambling prevalence study (Wiebe, Single, & Falkowski-Ham, 2001) with regards to levels of gambling and problem gambling. A telephone survey was conducted with a sample of 3,604 adults 18 years and older from Ontario. Levels of gambling and problem gambling were assessed through the Canadian Problem Gambling Index (CPGI) (Ferris & Wynne, 2001). Data collection was conducted by the Hitachi Survey Research Center at the University of Toronto.
