PRIORITY POPULATIONS

These priority populations or vulnerable communities should be considered within any social impact assessment of EGMs. They should be considered when assessing whether a location is appropriate for EGMs (Location Factors, above). For various reasons, research has shown that these populations are more vulnerable to the harm the gambling can cause.
