|Metadata item 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|
|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.|
