IPI Legal & Compliance Manager Esther Milne presented the plan to the Commonwealth Casino Commission during a meeting at the Joeten- Kiyu Public Library conference room earlier this week.

T

he study aims at getting “raw data” in a hope to establish whether people here have gambling problems, Milne said, adding that they plan to complete the survey by Dec. 31.

To be led by IPI’s Legal & Compliance division, the Corporate Social Responsibility staffers and volunteers will go to public places on Saipan, Tinian and Rota, and give out questionnaires that ask random individuals if they participate in any type of gambling. The affirmative answer will lead to which type of gambling they prefer and how often they gamble, and to what end.

The last question, about whether a person feels like they have a gambling problem, will be the most important one, Milne said, because it will establish a baseline on what extent, if any, problem gambling in the CNMI exists.

Immediately, the commission made suggestions.
