Abstract: This article derives statistical models relating adolescents’ universal human values with their problem and pathological gambling. An adolescent's values are measured by the priority accorded to each value using the Schwartz Values Inventory, whereas problem or pathological gambling, if any, is indicated by his or her answers to the South Oaks Gambling Screen. Among other complex results, statistical analysis suggests that the value subtypes of “non-faith tradition,” “faith tradition,” and “macro-universalism” and the value type “stimulation” are associated with less problem and pathological gambling. Among other uses, such findings help identify high-risk adolescents. Abstract published by arrangement with Taylor and Francis.
