This Information Paper outlines revisions to alcohol data by risk level from the 2002 and 2008 National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Survey (NATSISS). Data in this Information Paper reflect the 2001 National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Guidelines for the consumption of alcohol and replace NATSISS information already published on that basis by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).

In addition to the revised data in the Information Paper, the ABS has also provided a set of data cubes with more detailed information (listed in Section 2).

In Section 3 of this Paper, the ABS has included, for the first time, NATSISS alcohol data by risk level reflecting the 2009 NHMRC Guidelines for reducing the health risks from drinking alcohol.

The ABS will be revising, on a progressive basis, all known products containing incorrect alcohol data by risk level, as outlined in Section 4 of this paper.

Section 5 of the Information Paper provides an overview of the 2001 and 2009 NHMRC Guidelines.

1. Data revisions

2. New NATSISS data cubes based on 2001 NHMRC Guidelines

3. NATSISS Alcohol data based on 2009 NHMRC Guidelines
