Summary Presents data collected in Australia's most comprehensive national survey on drug issues. Key results on drug-related awareness, knowledge, attitudes and behaviours are compared to the results for other states and territories combined. Comparisons with the 1995 survey are featured and population estimates of the numbers of consumers of both licit and illicit substances are also provided. This report is part of the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare's Drug Statistics Series. Future survey-related reports in the series will cover correlates of drug use and other state and territory comparisons. This report and others in the series will be useful resources for policy planners and researchers interested in drug-related matters
