2007 Nova Scotia Adult Gambling Prevalence Study
Nova Scotia Department of Health Promotion and Protection
The 2007 Nova Scotia Adult Gambling Prevalence Study, commissioned by Nova Scotia Health Promotion and Protection (NSHPP), marks the fourth such study to be conducted in the province and the second using the Canadian Problem Gambling Index. This report describes the prevalence of gambling and problem gambling among adults 19 years of age and older who are permanent residents of Nova Scotia, living in private households (n=2,500). It also describes the changes that occurred between 2003 and 2007. In addition to the adult survey, supplementary surveys were administered to a select sub-sample of young adults 19-34 years (n=240) and youth (n=85) living in these randomly selected households.
