Alcohol Hours

Alcohol involvement is not directly measured for some datasets, therefore an alternative surrogate measure of applying alcohol hours is used. There are two different sets of hours used, one for serious road injuries, and the other for assaults. More detailed information can be found in the methods document (the document opens in a new tab).

The availability of some primary data may vary over time, and there may be a time lag in gaining access to data for analysis and mapping. For some map areas, the data is not available due to the need to maintain confidentiality (through suppression of values less than 5, as agreed with data custodians). Data collection can vary between jurisdictions and therefore we advise caution in comparisons between jurisdictions. Where data is available, jurisdictional statistics have been provided, however, we are unable to provide national statistics at this time.
