AbstractThe purpose of this study was to examine changes in gambling participation and the prevalence of gambling-related problems in Oregon between 1997 and 2000. A sample of Oregon residents aged 18 and over (N=1,500) was interviewed between October and December, 2000, about the types of gambling they had tried, the amounts of money they spend on gambling, and about gambling-related difficulties. The results of this study will be useful in documenting the impact of legal gambling on the citizens of Oregon and in refining the services available to individuals in Oregon with gambling-related difficulties.
