Alcohol and other drug statistics and mapping

Overview

AODstats maps information on the harms related to alcohol, illicit and pharmaceutical drug use in Victoria. The maps bring together results from alcohol and drug-related primary and secondary data sources available in Victoria.

Data includes:

  • emergency presentations
  • hospital admissions
  • deaths
  • service treatment episodes
  • telephone and online counselling services
  • serious road injuries and assaults and
  • domestic violence incidents.

Data will typically be presented across a ten-year period (where available), retrospectively analysed and updated on a half-yearly basis. This means that each six-month period, new indicator data will be added as it becomes available and existing data will be amended where required.

Half-yearly releases will typically be available to the public approximately two months after the end of the six-month period (e.g. 30 September quarter will be released around 30 November).
