Abstract: In 2006 OASAS completed its most recent statewide household survey. The focus of the survey was on gambling behavior and problems. Among the gambling-related items included in the interview schedule were: the frequency of engaging in 16 different gambling activities during the past year, weekly gambling in a typical month, age of first gambling experience, and the 10 diagnostic criteria for pathological gambling from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association. This brief report describes initial findings regarding gambling behavior and problems as well as the cross-prevalence of problem gambling and substance use disorders.
