The ENHJEU-Quebec Survey, Portrait of gambling in Quebec: Prevalence, incidence, and trajectories over four years investigates the gambling habits and gambling-related problems of Quebecers. The first phase of the survey was completed in 2009, during which information was collected from 11,888 adults from all regions of Quebec.
The second phase of the project was conducted in 2011 among 12,008 adults in the province to identify emerging gambling trends and problems. In addition, a portion of 2009 participants were followed-up over a period of three years to better assess various gambling trajectories (2009, 2010, 2011). The results of this study will support the Ministry of Health and Social Services and the regional health agencies when planning prevention programs and will help ensure that services in all regions of Quebec adequately address the needs of gamblers seeking help.
