FARE 2018 Annual alcohol poll: Attitudes and behaviours.


The Poll is now in its ninth year of publication and explores Australia’s attitudes towards alcohol, drinking behaviours, awareness and experience of alcohol harm, and opinions on alcohol policies.
 
Key findings this year include:

  • Fewer than half than half of Australians are aware of the link between alcohol misuse and stroke (38%), mouth and throat cancer (26%) and breast cancer (16%).
  • 70% of Australians indicate that they are aware of the Australian Guidelines to Reduce Health Risks from Drinking Alcohol, but only 28% are also aware of the content.
  • 84% of people think Australians have the right to know about the long-term harms associated with regular alcohol use.
  • 80% of Australians think governments have a responsibility to educate Australians about long‑term harms associated with regular alcohol use.
  • 61% of Australians believe that the alcohol industry would downplay independent university research findings linking alcohol consumption to a range of harms such as cancer and family violence.

The report, along with a series of short videos, is available at www.fare.org.au
