The sixth Bulletin documents trends in alcohol-attributable harms due to risky and high risk drinking for young people aged 15-24 yrs across Australia. Annual rates for males and females aged between 15 and 24 years for all states and territories have been presented, as well as comparisons between Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth and metropolitan and non-metropolitan regions. Over 2,643 young people have died in the last ten years from alcohol-attributable injury and disease; mostly due to road injury, suicide and violence.
