Azar y fortuna en España: la Lotería Nacional, 1850-2000
This article examines the determinants of the Spanish National Lottery between 1850 and 2000. The sales data are from Gaceta de Madrid (1850-1920), Cuentas de Tesoreros (Sección de Hacienda) of Administración General Estado Archive (1939-1955) and the Annual Reports from LAE (1985-2000). The results provide a detailed examination of the socioeconomic and demographic characteristics of lottery players –income, educational levels, urbanisation, number of lottery retail outlets in the province, age and religion- that historically determine lottery ticket purchases in Spain. This study uses standard OLS estimation and models that account spatial dependence between a province and its neighbors. KEY Classification-JEL: L83, N34, C23
