Abstract: En este estudio, los investigadores encuestaron a cerca de 1600 veteranos hispanoamericanos (latinos) y americanos nativos en del suroeste y centro-norte de Estados Unidos acerca de sus hábitos y patrones de juegos, así como el uso de alcohol/drogas y problemas de salud mental. El Casino para jugar estaba a disposición de los sujetos en ambas regiones. Aproximadamente el 8% de los sujetos cumplieron los criterios para la ludopatía, con cifras similares en ambas regiones. Los americanos nativos eran mucho más propensos que los hispanoamericanos a tener problemas para apostar, y las mujeres fueron ligeramente más propensas que los hombres. (Aunque el número de mujeres era muy pequeño, dificultando los juicios estadísticos). Otros factores asociados con tasas más altas de juego patológico incluyó más educación, grupo de edad 40-60 años y el uso de sustancias o tener trastorno de salud mental.///In this study, researchers surveyed about 1600 Hispanic-American and Native American veterans living in the Southwestern and North Central U.S. about their gambling habits and patterns, as well as alcohol/drug use and mental health issues. Casino gambling was available to the subjects in both regions. Approximately 8% of subjects met the criteria for pathological gambling, with figures similar in both regions. Native Americans were much more likely than Hispanic Americans to have gambling problems, and women were slightly more likely than men. (Though the number of women was very small, making statistical judgements difficult.) Other factors associated with higher rates of pathological gambling included more education, 40-60 year age group, and having a substance use or mental health disorder.
