Abstract: This report presents the results of a replication survey of adolescent gambling and problem gambling in Washington State. The main purpose of this study was to examine changes in gambling participation and the prevalence of gambling-related problems among adolescents in Washington State between 1993 and 1999. Another purpose of this study was to identify the types of gambling causing the greatest difficulties for the youth of Washington State. A sample of Washington State residents aged 13 to 17 (N=1,000) were interviewed in January and February, 1999, about the types of gambling they have tried, the amounts of money they spend on gambling and about gambling-related difficulties. The results of this study are intended to assist in refining the services available to youth with gambling problems as well as their families in Washington State.
