WA teases first results of 2014 ASSAD Survey: Youth drinking rates lowest in a decade

Not the full report or even a bulletin with a brief summary, instead the WA Government used some of the alcohol findings from the yet-to-be-released 2014 Australian Secondary School Alcohol and Drugs (ASSAD) Survey to launch a parent campaign. Although only a brief media release what is there is very positive with the proportion of WA students choosing not to drink more than doubling from 12.3% in 2005 to 31.5% in 2014. The release also reports that their campaign tracking research showed that almost all parents (96 per cent) were now aware that no alcohol was the safest choice for under 18s, up from 68 per cent in 2012. More than 60 per cent now denied access to alcohol, compared with 56 per cent in 2012.
