First findings from the SA 2014 ASSAD survey released

South Australia becomes the first jurisdiction to release preliminary results of their component of the 2014 Australian Secondary School Alcohol and Drugs (ASSAD) Survey. In this DASSA Bulletin the authors note that there was a methodological change for this survey and comparisons should be “interpreted with caution”. Even with that in mind, the results are positive with the proportion of students who reported ever drinking alcohol decreasing from 78% (in 2011) to 68%. Lifetime use of alcohol also decreased among both male and female students.
