 New Mexico Survey - Casinos and the Poor

THE "NEW MEXICO SURVEY OF GAMBLING BEHAVIOR 1996" REPORTS THAT: "THE PREVALENCE OF SERIOUS GAMBLING-RELATED PROBLEMS INCREASES SIGNIFICANTLY WITH DECREASING INCOME." p. 16.

IT FURTHER STATES: TWELVE PERCENT OF PERSONS WITH REPORTED INCOME LESS THAN $10,000 REPORTED SERIOUS PROBLEMS RELATED TO GAMBLING COMPARED WITH 2-3% OF THOSE WITH REPORTED INCOMES OVER $50,000." p. 16.

"THE TREND OF INCREASING PROBLEMS WITH DECREASING INCOME WAS HIGHLY STATISTICALLY SIGNIFICANT." p. 16.

EXPANDED GAMBLING CAN NOW BE CLEARLY CREDITED WITH CAUSING GAMBLING ADDICTION IN 12% OF NEW MEXICO'S POOR.
