Project Title: Identifying individual and population-level risk factors for gambling participation and harms

Summary: Gambling and gambling disorders are increasingly coming under public and academic scrutiny, especially as a public health outcome, and many countries (including the UK) are undergoing substantial legislative reform. This project seeks to identify risk factors for participating in various forms of gambling (Internet, sports betting, chance-based, etc.) and factors that contribute to impact thereof, such as developing Problem Gambling. Various large UK and international data sets such as the Adult Psychiatric Morbidity Survey will be investigated to try and undercover these underlying factors and see how different subsets of people (e.g., younger adults) differ in their risk factors and outcomes.
