AREA'S LOSSES

NSW Liquor and Gaming bundle together the data for neighbouring council areas if, in one or more of those areas, there are less than 5 venues of a type. These bundled groups are not consistent from one half year to the next, nor are they necessarily the same for pubs and clubs. It makes it very difficult to establish losses in individual council areas which do not have many gambling pubs or clubs.
