Demographic Sources of Ontario Gaming Revenue - 2004

Document Synopsis: 

A study from 2004 looking at the sources of gaming revenue, and whether this revenue is coming from those who can afford to gamble. It also attempts to address the question of whether the economic benefits can outweigh the negative effects.

"The study indicates that a substantial portion of gaming revenue derives from people who are negatively impacted by their involvement in this activity"

"It is not clear that the benefits of gambling outweigh the negative effects in places that do not attract a substantial portion of their patrons from other jurisdictions (Grinols, 2004)."
