About the survey
The ‘Pints, punts ‘n peers’ survey aims to understand the relationship between alcohol consumption and sports betting (including race betting). We hope that our findings will provide helpful information for young people, their families, policy makers, and support services.
How you can help
You are eligible to take part in this online survey if you:
- Are aged between 18 and 35;
- Live in Australia; and,
- Have bet on sports (including racing) in the past 12 months.
This is a short, confidential survey that will ask you about:
- Your sports betting (including race betting) behaviours;
- Your drinking behaviours and/or use of other drugs;
- Your other gambling behaviours; and,
- Your general health and wellbeing.
The survey should take about 15 minutes. Your time is valuable. To thank people for their time, we will award $200 gift vouchers to five randomly selected participants who provide their contact details at the end of the survey. These vouchers will be allocated in early 2019.
Participating in this survey is completely voluntary and you may choose to stop participating at any time. To withdraw from the survey, click on the ‘Exit and clear survey’ button at any time. You can also just close the browser window, but this will keep any responses you have already given.
Survey responses are confidential and anonymous and your privacy is really important to us. If you choose to provide contact details to go in the voucher draw or participate in a follow up interview, your contact information will be kept in a separate password-protected database to maintain your confidentiality. This personal information will not be shared with anyone else and will be securely deleted once the draw and/or follow up interviews are completed.
The survey data will be stored securely for a minimum of seven years in accordance with the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) research guidelines. All files will be stored either in a locked filing cabinet or on the password-protected server at the Australian Institute of Family Studies. Only members of the research team will have access to them.
