Background Memo  

The most recent survey by Fairleigh Dickinson University’s PublicMind was conducted by telephone from Jan. 5, 2009 through Jan. 11, 2009 using a randomly selected sample of 841 adult residents statewide.  The margin of error for 841 randomly selected respondents is +/- 3.5 percentage points.  Survey results are also subject to non-sampling error. This kind of error, which cannot be measured, arises from a number of factors including, but not limited to, non-response (eligible individuals refusing to be interviewed), question wording, the order in which questions are asked, and variations among interviewers. PublicMind interviews are conducted by professionally trained interviewers use a CATI (Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing) system. Random selection >is achieved by computerized random-digit dialing. This technique gives every person with a land-line phone number (including those with unlisted numbers) an equal chance of being selected. Results are mathematically weighted to match known demographics.

In the next 12 months, (2009) will you visit an Atlantic City casino?
