Abstract: This thesis analyzes the gambling industry and how its growth has impacted theUnited States at an economic and individual level. The rise of the internet has made it easier for people to bet from the palm of their hand, therefore making it easier for companies to reap the benefits of a larger customer base, This in turn allows state governments to benefit in revenue by regulating and taxing sports book companies. It is easy to see how states have benefited economically from the gambling industry, but have individuals within the states that allow sports betting benefited as well?Using findings on gambling addiction and sports betting revenue there may be a correlation between the growth of revenue and the rise in homelessness. This may be supported by also analyzing where states allocate revenue obtained from the gambling industry.As North Carolina has recently passed a bill that will allow online sports betting as of January 8th, 2024, it is important to disclose findings and question possible correlations to pave the way for future inquisition.
