Abstract

It is only through acknowledging complexity and a willingness to engage in an ongoing quest for understanding that we can ever hope to fully understand the phenomena of problem gambling. While prevalence studies constitute one of the most frequently used types of research in the field of gambling studies, are they prone to be misinterpreted when efforts are made to gain an insight into the causes behind the development of gambling problems?
