The Massachusetts Gaming Commission pursues further study of gambling behavior for special populations in Massachusetts
The Massachusetts Gaming Commission (MGC) issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) to conduct a study of gambling behavior and possible impacts of the introduction of casinos on population subgroups in Massachusetts to build upon the initial “Gambling and Problem Gambling in Massachusetts: Results of a Baseline Population Survey” that was released in 2015. In 2013, MGC engaged a research team at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst to perform a comprehensive study of the economic and social impacts of the introduction of casino gambling in Massachusetts, with particular emphasis on problem gambling. The initial baseline study identified several potential populations and subgroups that warrant further investigation.
MGC has an initial budget of $100,000 for this project. The RFP is located on CommBuys BD-17-1068-1068C-1068L-13699, and responses are due by April 7, 2017.
