ASSAD and NDSHS reports: 1998-2014

Australia has two major data collection instruments that examine the use of alcohol and other drugs (AOD). The Australian Secondary Students Alcohol and other Drug (ASSAD) survey provides information on the AOD use of school-based young people and is conducted by the Cancer Council. The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) conducts the National Drug Strategy Household Survey which examines the prevalence of drug use across the general community.

Although it is useful to look at trends over time, it can be difficult to locate some of the older reports. Some are no longer available. PDF downloadable copies of those that are available can be found at the following links:
