AbstractThis report presents the results of the first survey of adolescent gambling and problem gambling in the State of New York. The main purpose of this study was to examine the prevalence of gambling-related problems among adolescents in New York State. Another purpose of this study was to identify the types of gambling causing the greatest difficulties for adolescents in New York. A large sample of New York residents aged 13 to 17 (N=1,103) were interviewed between July and October, 1997, about the types of gambling they have tried, the amounts of money they spend on gambling and about gambling-related difficulties. The information in this report is intended to serve as a foundation in the development of prevention, education, outreach and treatment services for adolescents throughout the state with gambling-related difficulties.
