Subject: Invitation to Join IAGR Statistics Sub-Committee

Dear IAGR members
The possibility to find public data in order to compare the development on the gambling market between countries is very limited. At the IAGR Board of Trustees meeting in Lima, Peru, 2015, the Board agreed to establish a sub-committee on statistics in IAGR. Furthermore, the Board expressed positive comments regarding a Statistics sub-committee at the BOT meeting in London in February 2016.
The aim of the Statistics Sub-Committee is to collect and present an overview of the following statistics on a yearly basis
  • The size of the gambling market in different countries
  • Comparable data for the gambling market in different countries
  • Regulated gambling types in different countries
I very much hope that you find this initiative interesting. I personally think that the sub-committee could contribute with valuable information to all IAGR members. We would get a unique overview of comparable data sets across jurisdictions and hopefully find the information useful in our regulatory work and duties. I will be chairing the Sub-Committee and furthermore contribute with Chief Adviser Martin Ipsen who is very experienced within statistics. The Board of Trustees would very much appreciate if you would consider contributing with a group member from your staff too to make this initiative a success.
The plan is to conduct the first committee meeting in connection with our yearly IAGR conference in Sydney, 31 October – 3 November 2016. Subsequently, we expect to have an online meeting every 2 months.
Please find attached a terms of reference for the committee.
I look forward to hearing from you. Please use my email as point of contact.
Best regards
Birgitte Sand
