Impacts of Gambling in Massachusetts: Results of a Baseline Online Panel Survey (BOPS)


  • Prepared By: SEIGMA Research Team
  • Release Date: January 10, 2017

This report summarizes the results of a baseline online panel survey. The purpose of this survey was to recruit a significantly larger number of problem gamblers than could be obtained in a general population survey. The enriched sample provides more reliable estimates of the negative personal impacts of gambling, the differential impact of different types of gambling, and prevention awareness and treatment-seeking behavior of problem gamblers in Massachusetts. This information is useful to help establish baseline levels of impacts prior to the introduction of casino gambling to Massachusetts as well as for purposes of treatment planning.
