Australian secondary school student alcohol use

Beginning in 1984, this survey obtains prevalence estimates of alcohol use among secondary schoolchildren throughout Australia at three-yearly intervals. The survey also obtains prevalence estimates of secondary students' use of tobacco, and since 1996, use of illicit substances and non-prescription pain killers.
