National Indigenous Reform Agreement: P05-Average daily alcohol consumption and associated risk levels; rates of alcohol consumption at long-term risky to high risk levels, 2010
Identifying and definitional attributes
|Metadata item type:||Indicator|
|Short name:||Average daily alcohol consumption and associated risk levels; rates of alcohol consumption at long-term risky to high risk levels, 2010|
|Description:||Proportion of Australians who consume alcohol at risky/high risk levels, by Indigenous status.|
|Rationale:||Excessive alcohol consumption is a major risk factor that contributes to ill health. Of those who drink, Indigenous Australians are more likely to consume alcohol at risky/high risk levels. Reducing the rate at which Indigenous Australians to drink at hazardous levels will assist in closing the gap in life expectancy.|

|Further data development / collection required:|
The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) have developed new guidelines on ‘risky’ and ‘high risk’ alcohol consumption.
Mechanisms for reporting annually in between surveys could be explored.Reliable data on Indigenous adolescents would be useful.
|Other issues caveats:|
Risky and high/risk alcohol consumption based on estimated average daily consumption.This performance indicator has COAG two outcomes areas: 'Indigenous people remain healthy and free from preventable disease' and 'Alcohol and drug abuse among Indigenous people is overcome'.
