Overview of the Social and Economic Impact Study of Gambling in Tasmania

The fourth Social and Economic Impact Study (SEIS) of Gambling in Tasmania is taking place in 2017.

A consortium comprising ACIL Allen Consulting, Deakin University, Central Queensland University and the Social Research Centre has been engaged by the Tasmanian Department of Treasury and Finance (‘the Department’) to carry out the SEIS.

A SEIS is required to take place every three years under the Gaming Control Act 1993. The first SEIS was completed in 2008, with subsequent studies in 2011 and 2014.

A public report of SEIS findings will be released on the Department’s website in 2018.
