Abstract

This report outlines the findings of a study undertaken by the National Drug Research Institute in collaboration with the Central Australian Aboriginal Congress. The study examined the impact of various alcohol control measures on levels of alcohol consumption and related harm in Central Australia for the period 2000-2010. This report includes details on:

  • study aim and research methods
  • alcohol control measures
  • alcohol consumption
  • alcoholic beverage prices
  • health indicators
  • crime and public order.

The study found that imposing additional alcohol control measures has contributed significantly to the reduction of estimated per capita consumption in Central Australia. The study found that most effective measures have been those which indirectly increased the average price per litre of alcoholic beverages.
