Back to Gambling.

*Those who report no gambling in the past 12 months form the first category No Gambling.
Gamblers who answer No to Q3 and Q4 and Q5 of the Gambling module are in the Low-Risk Gambling category.
The remainder are gamblers who answer Yes to Q3 or Q4 or Q5 of the Gambling module and are in the Problem Gambling category.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to changes in the weighting methodology and other factors, results from 2020 are NOT comparable to 2010
and earlier years.

***The estimate was suppressed because it did not meet statistical reliability standards. See BRFSS 2020 Annual Results Technical Notes for more details.
