Abstract

The Australian National University (ANU) Centre for Gambling Research (CGR) was funded by the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) Gambling and Racing Commission to conduct the 2019 ACT Gambling Survey. The 2019 survey saw 10,000 ACT adult residents interviewed over a 6-week period (April–May 2019). Participants provided detailed information on their gambling participation, expenditure and harm (including harm from significant others’ gambling) during the past 12 months. Select groups of participants were asked about attitudes towards gambling, help-seeking behavior, physical and mental wellbeing, financial hardship, and online expenditure.
