This project is a pilot study for the Health Department of Western Australia designed to demonstrate how data on local area alcohol consumption, drink driving offences and assaults can be used to profile the level of alcohol related harm in towns and localities in Western Australia. This project is being conducted in parallel with the NDRI's WA Liquor Licensing Demonstration Project. The statistical profiles are to include comparison to state wide levels of harm and to consider the influence of tourists and other non-resident populations. The completed profiles are to be available to the Director of Public Health in his role as provided under the Liquor Licensing Act.
