The Social Determinants of Youth Gambling in South Australian Adolescents.
Delfabbro, Paul; Thrupp, Letitia
Journal of Adolescence, v26 n3 p313-30 Jun 2003
Investigates the hypothesis that gambling can be understood in terms of variations in economic socialization. A school survey of 505 adolescents showed that over 60% of adolescents were gambling annually. Adolescents whose parents taught them about keeping to a budget, saving money, and maintaining their finances were less likely to express an interest in future gambling.
