Understanding gambling behaviour and impact is the first step to minimising harm from gambling disorders.
The Centre for Gambling Research at the ANU Centre for Social Research & Methods conducts important research into measuring, managing and minimising harms from gambling in Australia.
Biotext has edited and designed several of their recent reports, including:
- 2019 ACT Gambling Survey looked at the social and economic impacts of gambling in the ACT. In the survey, ACT adult residents provided detailed information on their gambling participation, expenditure and harm during the past 12 months.
- Review of NT Code of Practice for Responsible Gambling presented the findings of the review of the Northern Territory Code of Practice for Responsible Gambling 2016 conducted by the ANU for the Northern Territory Government.
- Gambling Support Study: understanding gambling harm experienced by female affected others presented results from the Gambling Support Study, which aimed to understand how women who have a partner or close family member with a gambling disorder experience gambling-related harm. The study also explored how these ‘affected others’ can be supported by gambling help services.
We edited the reports, developed concepts for cover images, redrew numerous graphs illustrating the findings, laid out the reports and proofread them after design.
