This is the third in a series of reports undertaken for the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission estimating the cost of serious and organised crime. It updates and improves on the methodology used in the previous report, which estimated the cost of organised crime in 2016–17. As with the previous research, this report considers the direct and consequential costs of serious and organised crime in Australia, as well as the costs to government entities, businesses and individuals associated with preventing and responding to serious and organised crime. While the current estimates were undertaken during the COVID-19 pandemic and may reflect changes in criminality resulting from the pandemic, the full economic impact of serious and organised criminal offending committed during the pandemic will not be known for some time. It is clear, however, that the impact of serious and organised crime on the Australian economy is substantial.</p> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><h2>Contents</h2> <ul> <li>Acknowledgements</li> <li>Acronyms and abbreviations</li> <li>Abstract</li> <li>Introduction <ul> <li>Methodological approach</li> </ul> </li> <li>Direct serious and organised crime costs <ul> <li>Illicit drug activity</li> <li>Organised financial crime</li> <li>Crimes against the person</li> <li>Illicit commodities</li> <li>Pure cybercrime</li> <li>Serious and organised crime enabling costs</li> </ul> </li> <li>Consequential organised crime costs</li> <li>Indirect costs of preventing and responding to serious and organised crime <ul> <li>Public sector costs</li> <li>Private sector and other costs</li> <li>Summary indirect prevention and response costs</li> </ul> </li> <li>Conclusion and summary</li> <li>References</li> </ul> </div> Tue, 07 Dec 2021 01:37:46 +0000 Yvette Maconachie 2517 at https://www.aic.gov.au Changes in online gambling during the COVID-19 pandemic: April update https://www.aic.gov.au/publications/sb/sb27 <span>Changes in online gambling during the COVID-19 pandemic: April update</span> <span>Tue, 2020-06-23 15:59</span> <div class="field field--name-field-author field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--items"> <div class="field--item"><a href="/author/brown-rick" hreflang="en">Brown, Rick</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/author/hickman-amelia" hreflang="en">Hickman, Amelia</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-issn field--type-string field--label-inline"> <div class="field--label">ISSN</div> <div class="field--items"> <div class="field--item">2206-7302</div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-isbn field--type-string field--label-inline"> <div class="field--label">ISBN</div> <div class="field--item">9781925304626</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-published-date field--type-datetime field--label-inline"> <div class="field--label">Published Date</div> <div class="field--item"><time datetime="2020-06-09T12:00:00Z">09-06-2020</time> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-subject field--type-entity-reference field--label-inline"> <div class="field--label">Subject</div> <div class="field--items"> <div class="field--item"><a href="/subject/gambling" hreflang="und">Gambling</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/subject/surveys" hreflang="und">Surveys</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-series field--type-entity-reference field--label-inline"> <div class="field--label">Series</div> <div class="field--item">Statistical Bulletin</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-series-num field--type-integer field--label-hidden field--item">27</div> <div class="field field--name-field-abstract field--type-text-long field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Abstract</div> <div class="field--item"><p>This paper examines changes in online gambling behaviour in April 2020 and compares the results with those of March 2020.

Questions were included in an omnibus survey employing an online panel sample, with data collected in early April 2020. The results showed that almost a quarter of respondents had participated in online gambling in the previous month. Ten percent had increased their participation in at least one form of online gambling, while 14 percent had decreased their involvement. Those betting on sporting events in Australia were the most likely to increase their participation in online gambling. When demographic factors were examined, being male, aged under 30 and in full-time employment were all associated with increased participation in online gambling in the last month.</p> </div> </div> Tue, 19 May 2020 23:48:18 +0000 UaNTPyUFjHmSnyzE 542 at https://www.aic.gov.au
