What Victorians think about gambling
In 2019, we surveyed 1231 Victorians about their views on gambling. This included their thoughts on gambling harm and stigma, setting limits when gambling, and gambling and sport.
The online survey ran from 8 May to 3 June 2019. Participants were randomly invited from an Online Research Unit database of around 55,000 Victorians.
We set quotas for age, gender and location and weighted the results to Australian Bureau of Statistics figures to reflect the Victorian population. Find out more about how the survey was conducted.
This survey gives us a snapshot of community attitudes and perceptions about gambling. The insights are informing our work to address gambling harm, complementing major population studies we conduct every few years to gauge how gambling in Victoria is changing over time.
