not only assess these impacts, but to guide and assess remediation strategies for the potential negative effects."

Marlene Warner, executive director of the Massachusetts Council on Compulsive Gambling, says, "The commission's strong commitment to researching gambling and problem gambling's impact in the Commonwealth is not only highly commendable, but it is also cutting-edge. This is the first study of this magnitude in the United States. It will provide solid and important data to inform problem gambling services and policy, within Massachusetts, and with similar programs in the United States and abroad."

Other members of the research team from UMass Amherst are Krishna Poudel, Rosa Rodriguez-Monguio and Martha Zorn of SPHHS, with Laurie Salame of hospitality and tourism management. In addition, Robert Williams of the University of Lethbridge, Alberta; Dan Hodge, Rebecca Loveland, Lindsay Koshgarian, Carrie Bernstein and John Gaviglio from the UMass Donahue Institute are part of the team, with Natasha Schull of MIT and Mark Nichols of the University of Nevada, Reno.

Surveys and other primary data will be collected by NORC at the University of Chicago, Ipsos USA Public Affairs in Washington, D.C., and Market Street Research of Northampton, Mass.
