NAIP Bulletin 12 documents trends in alcohol-attributable deaths and hospitalisations across all Australian jurisdictions. This bulletin shows that between 1996-2005, an estimated 32,696 Australians aged 15 years and older died from alcohol-attributable injury and disease caused by risky/high risk drinking. An estimated 813,072 Australians aged 15 years and older were also hospitalised. This bulletin, which shows rates of alcohol-caused deaths are relatively stable while hospitalisation rates are increasing, also includes estimates of non-alcohol-attributable deaths and hospitalisations.
