GPWA error?
Correct me if I'm wrong, but the GPWA times Magazine, issue 49/April 2021, under the wall of shame seems to have an error with the maths.
It is stating the percentage of "problem gamblers" is 0.006% of the Irish Population.
They were going on a figure of problem gamblers of 30,000 and the 2020 population of Ireland which I have as 4,937,786. I calculate the percentage to be 0.60% (So just above a half of 1 percent)
Equation: 30,000 divided by 4,937,786 = 0.006 x 100 = 0.60%
If the problem gamblers did equate to 0.006% then this would mean 300 problem gamblers.
Equation: 300 divided by 4,937,786 = 0.000060 x 100 = 0.006%
