Betting against Youth: The Effects of Socioeconomic Marginality on Gambling among Young People.
Schissel, Bernard
Youth & Society, v32 n4 p473-91 Jun 2001
Uses 1996 Saskatchewan Youth Attitude Survey data to explore the nature of youth gambling and its relation to social disadvantage, comparing minority and white youth and males and females. Results indicate that youth gamble significantly, and youth gambling is a form of regressive taxation that exploits those most vulnerable because of their socioeconomic marginality and their feelings of relative powerlessness.
