Drug Action Week 22 - 28 June 2008

The Drug Action Week 2008 website has a range of Factsheets available which provide summary data about alcohol and drugs in relation to young people, sport, the workplace, indigenous peoples, and more.

Illicit Drugs Data
  • The latest summary results from Australia's major survey of drug use and related issues, the 2007 National Drug Strategy Household Survey, were released in April 2008 by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW).


Data relating to illicit drugs in Australia can be found across a range of resources. A comprehensive overview of sources of data is provided in the AIHW publication Statistics on Drug Use in Australia, 2006. An earlier overview was released by the ABS in 2001: Illicit Drug Use, Sources of Australian Data (cat. no. 4808.0).

Links to key data resources are also available via the UNSW Drug Policy Monitoring Program webpage on Drug Statistics; and the Australian Institute of Criminology (AIC) wepages on Illicit Drugs and Alcohol.
