Table 3 Burden of harm estimates by PGSI and SGHS categories

From: Benchmarking gambling screens to health-state utility: the PGSI and the SGHS estimate similar levels of population gambling-harm

  1. Note: Weights from Moayeri [31] provided for comparison only, and not used for subsequent calculations. SF-6D decrement (or disability) weights were sourced from Table 2 above, and control for other variables. Prevalence figures for the PGSI & SGHS in the Victorian community were sourced from Rockloff et al. [13], based on respondents who gambled in the last 12 months. Aggregate based on population of Victorian adults from census data: 5,926,624 x prevalence x SF-6D decrement, to form an estimate of per-year, disability adjusted life years (DALYs)
