People's Participation in, and Attitudes Towards Gambling 1985-2000

This report is the fourth in a survey series that was first undertaken in 1985, prior to the introduction of Lotto.

The survey series examines people's participation gaming activities in New Zealand, looking at:
  • frequency of participation
  • expenditure on gaming
  • reasons for playing
  • beliefs about the gaming activities.

The survey series also investigates public attitudes to gaming. This research looks at:
  • factors that people think should guide gaming legislation
  • desirability of gaming activities
  • where the profits from gaming activities go
  • definition of worthy causes for the receipt of gaming profits.

The series looks at new forms of gaming, prior to their introduction or up-take in New Zealand. This year, the report looks at the prevalence of Internet-based gaming activity and public attitudes to Internet-based gaming.

The survey has been updated at five-yearly intervals since 1985 with surveys conducted in 1990, 1995 and now 2000.

The report presents the findings from a randomly selected sample of 1,500 people aged 15 years and over living in private households, who were interviewed face-to-face between June and July 2000.
