This is the sixth in a series of surveys auspiced by the National Drug Strategy (and its predecessors) and the first conducted by the AIHW. It is a national household survey of non-institutionalised persons aged 14 and over. There were 10,030 completed responses in 1998. Fieldwork was conducted by Roy Morgan Research. Topics include knowledge, attitudes and perceptions of drug-related issues, personal use of drugs (tobacco, alcohol and illicit drugs), support for drug-related policies, personal involvement in drug-related activities and victimisation, as well as typical demographics.
