Upcoming research events
Gambling expenditure and harm in banking data
This session will go through a novel approach in research to show how gambling expenditure and harm can be objectively measured in bank data. Electronically-recorded gambling expenditure (e.g., in online and mobile gambling) can be retrieved from bank data, as well as relevant harm outcomes across financial (e.g., payday loans), social (e.g., spend on social activities) and health (e.g., spend on prescriptions, mortality) domains to provide information and knowledge. Dr Phillip Newall is one of the authors of this research.
Monitoring adolescent gambling in Victoria
In the webinar, Dr Freund will present a brief overview of the 2017 Australian School Students Alcohol and Drug (ASSAD) Survey. She will present on the research methods, summarise the findings of the final report, and provide a preview of additional analyses that have now been completed. The ASSAD is a triennial national cross-sectional survey of Victoria and Queensland students’ use of licit and illicit substances. A total of 4269 students in Victoria from 58 schools took part in the survey. The webinar will cover the prevalence, type, modalities of gambling and problem gambling overall, and by age and gender. It will also include environmental factors that may influence adolescent gambling including exposure to peer and family gambling and exposure to gambling promotions.
