Identifying and definitional attributes

Metadata item type:Indicator
Indicator type:Indicator
Short name:PI 05-Average daily alcohol consumption and associated risk levels; rates of alcohol consumption at long-term risky to high risk levels, 2011
METeOR identifier:425744
Registration status:Indigenous, Archived 01/07/2012
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.
