Abstract

Studies that obtain information from individuals over time provide the most accurate and insightful view of the course of gambling disorders. However, because the field of gambling studies is relatively new and the recognition of gambling as a potential public health problem is perhaps even more recent, research has been focused on studies that can provide more immediate and perhaps basic contributions to pressing concerns. The extended time necessary to conduct longitudinal studies is an additional constraint on the development of an evidence base that might provide more accurate models of the course of disordered gambling than do popular and conventional conceptions of the disorder.
