A Discrete Time Hazard Model of Lottery Adoption
Political Science, International Development, and International Affairs
This paper uses conventional logit probabilities to estimate a discrete-time hazard model of lottery adoption. The data set consists of a time-series of cross-sections on states in the US. Our findings suggest that politicians are more likely to support lottery adoption if high income constituents support the decision. A lottery is more likely to be adopted if there is a favourable climate for gambling in the state and if a bordering state has adopted a lottery.
