As a "PG" woman, I found your study interesting. I related to the age I started gambling compulsively, (I was 41) and I've found that I suffered the same problems from my gambling as others in my recovery path. I agree and support the suggestion to look at just the female gamblers to see if their starting age is higher...my recovery experience says that it is higher for non-strategic gambling women. I don't agree, however, that education is a factor in whether someone is strategic or non-strategic. I think that's a factor based more on personality and ego than on education...again based on my active gambling experience and my recovery experience.
