Alcohol Consumption, binge drinking

Looking for statistics on Australians and alcohol?

Data about Australians' alcohol consumption can be found in the health risk sections of both the National Health Survey, 2004-05 (cat. no. 4364.0) and National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Survey, 2004-05 (cat. no. 4715.0).

Alcohol Consumption in Australia: a Snapshot, 2004-05 (cat. no. 4832.0.55.001) summarises results from these and other surveys. It includes statistics relating to people drinking at a high risk level, and short term risk (binge drinking) data.

Estimates of the apparent per person consumption of beer, wine and spirits can be found in the annual publication: Apparent Consumption of Alcohol, Australia (cat. no. 4307.0.55.001).

Causes of death, Australia, 2006 (cat. no. 3303.0) includes data for mental and behavioural disorders due to the use of alcohol as the underlying cause of death .

Additional information is available from Australian Institute of Health & Welfare (AIHW) publications, including the National Drug Strategy Household Survey (2004). The Australian Secondary Students' Use of Alcohol in 2005 Report (Jun 2006) is available via the National Drug Strategy website.

The data provided in this article are very accurate, since alcohol causes many diseases to the body. Day by day many people suffer and die because of alcohol addiction. Let's hope this article serves as an eye-opener to all alcoholics out there.
