The University Student Gambling Habit Survey/Enquête sur les Habitudes de Jeu des Étudiants Universitaires 2008 (ENHJEU) was conducted with a representative sample of undergraduate students in universities in Montreal, QC. Given that young adults are considered vulnerable with respect to risk behaviors, the study aimed to achieve a better understanding of gambling in this group. Using a multilevel approach, the project examined the effects of the social, physical, and symbolic dimensions of contexts on gambling habits and problems.
