Grant number: BASS_BIRD2121_01
Collection period:

Temporal coverage:
Geographic coverage: Italy
Data collection method: Sampling frame Departing from Baratin, Bassoli and Turri (2022) we extract all empirical material gathered and analyse it according to the relevant variables identified.
Resource language: Italian
Metadata language: English
Additional information: Methodological caveat The focus of the research was identifying formal regulations (regolamento, ordinanza and delibera). Therefore, most regulations are aiming at reducing gambling, but some are moving in the opposite direction. The dataset does not contain information about the temporal validity of each document thus, hindering the possibility of determining the level of policy coverage per year.
