Fact Sheets based on the Canadian Problem Gambling Index- The survey utilised two alternative sets of measures of problem gambling: the South Oaks Gambling Screen (SOGS) and the Canadian Problem Gambling Index (CPGI). The two measures give different results. As the 2005 Study was the first time the CPGI has been used in Tasmania the findings cannot be compared with previous studies.
