Abstract
Description
The South Carolina Education Lottery was launched in January 2002. As a condition of its implementation, the legislature mandated that periodic studies would be conducted to monitor penetration and provide a demographic profile of players, including income, age, sex, education and frequency of participation. Overall, findings identify a moderate increase in the proportion of residents playing the South Carolina Education Lottery in 2003. More than half (53%) now say they have played at least one lottery game, compared to 49% in November 2002. Scratch-off tickets and Powerball are the primary games of choice among state players. Residents most likely to be playing the SC Education Lottery include: minorities, men, residents under the age of 55, those with lower education levels, and those with household incomes between $10,000 and $60,000.
