National Drug Strategy Household Survey 2016: detailed findings

28 Sep 2017
Description

This report expands on the key findings from the 2016 National Drug Strategy Household Survey (NDSHS) that were released on 1 June 2017. It presents more detailed analysis including comparisons between states and territories and for population groups. 

This report shows that:

- the decline in daily smoking slowed in 2016 but improvements were seen among people living in the lowest socioeconomic area;

- certain groups disproportionately experience drug-related risks and recent use of illicit drugs was particularly high for people who identified as homosexual or bisexual

- just under 4 in 10 Australians either smoked daily, drank alcohol in ways that put them at risk of harm or used an illicit drug in the previous 12 months.
