dc.description.abstract Toce-Gerstein et al. (2003) investigated the distribution of DSM-IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders, 4th edition) pathological gambling criteria endorsement in a U.S. community sample for those people endorsing a least one of the DSM-IV criteria (n=399). They proposed a hierarchy of gambling disorders where endorsement of 1-2 criteria were deemed ‘At-Risk’, 3-4 ‘Problem gamblers’, 5-7 ‘Low Pathological’, and 8-10 ‘High Pathological’ gamblers. This article examines these claims in a larger Australian treatment seeking population. Data from 4349 clients attending specialist problem gambling services were assessed for meeting the ten DSM-IV pathological gambling criteria. Results found higher overall criteria endorsement frequencies, three components, a direct relationship between criteria endorsement and gambling severity, clustering of criteria similar to the Toce-Gerstein et al. taxonomy, high accuracy scores for numerical and criteria specific taxonomies, and also high accuracy scores for dichotomous pathological gambling diagnoses. These results suggest significant complexities in the frequencies of criteria reports and relationships between criteria. en_US
