    National Drug Strategy Household Survey detailed report: 2013
  2. 18 Jun 2015 - Updates to the supplementary tables: some estimates may differ to previously published estimates due to rounding.
    • Table 3.4: updated to correct 2001 estimates as well as the occasional smokers, ex-smokers, and never smokers’ estimates for people aged 14 or older and 18 or older.
    • Table 9.25: updated to correct 2010 and 2013 estimates for ex-cannabis users.
  3. 30 Apr 2020 - Estimates of physical abuse by someone under the influence of alcohol or illicit drugs have been revised following a review of the methodology for their calculation in 2019.  This has affected the estimates presented in the 2010, 2013, and 2016 NDSHS publications. 2010 data are no longer available and the 2016 data tables and National Drug Strategy Household Survey 2016: detailed findings report should be referred to for the latest estimates and further details about the changes to these estimates. The revised estimates have resulted in slightly fewer people reporting that someone under the influence of alcohol or illicit drugs had physically abused them.
