The National Drug Strategy is a comprehensive, integrated approach to the harmful use of licit and illicit drugs and other substances. The National Drug Strategy is managed under the direction of the Ministerial Council on Drug Strategy, which brings together Commonwealth, state and territory Ministers responsible for health and law enforcement to collectively determine national policies and programs designed to reduce the harm caused by drugs to individuals, families and communities in Australia. Between June and September 1998, 10,030 Australians aged 14 and older participated in the National Drug Strategy Household Survey. This was the sixth survey in a series which began in 1985. Respondents were asked about their knowledge of drugs, their attitudes towards drugs, their drug consumption histories and related behaviours. This report features results for Western Australia, based on responses from 764 respondents in that state.
