About the Course:
This exploratory study seeks to better understand gambling patterns in a sample of incarcerated youth from the Las Vegas area. The study uses data derived from surveys administered to 269 incarcerated youth from two southern Nevada detention facilities. Respondents reported attitudes about gambling, frequency, and location of their gambling. In addition, it explores the link between gambling behavior and property crimes, socio-demographic variables, and gang membership.
This course is based on the reading-based online article, Gambling Attitudinal and Behavioral Patterns and Criminality in a Sample of Las Vegas Area Detained Youth created by Randy Brown, Ph.D., Eric Killian, and William P. Evans, Ph.D.
