AbstractThis report describes the results of a two and a half year research project focused on analyzing the socioeconomic impact of gambling in Alberta (SEIGA). This report reflects only research performed by a team of researchers at the University of Alberta. A companion report was produced by another research team at the University of Lethbridge. These two reports are intended to be coordinated, in that each contains complementary information about the socioeconomic impact of gambling; a complete picture of the socioeconomic impact of gambling will only emerge from both.
