It should be noted that the actual alcohol content of wine varies greatly, even for similar wine products.
7 Alcohol intake from beer is obtained from import clearance data and excise data on Australian production. Since 2003-04 the excise data used in these calculations has been obtained from the Australian Taxation Office. In previous years excise data was obtained from the Australian Custom Service. As the non excisable component of alcohol (the first 1.15%) was estimated by these Departments, data after 2003-04 may not be directly comparable with previous years.
8 Alcohol intake from spirits is obtained from import clearance data and excise data on Australian production with an adjustment to account for the excise paid on imported spirits which are commercially mixed with locally manufactured softdrinks after importation. Since 2003-04 the excise data used in these calculations has been obtained from the Australian Taxation Office. In previous years excise data was obtain from the Australian Customs Service.
9 Due to the relatively small quantities involved, no adjustments have been made for alcohol which is imported into Australia, cleared through the bonded warehouse and then subsequently re-exported.
10 Apparent consumption data included in this publication are calculated by dividing the quantity available for consumption by the Estimated Resident Population of persons aged 15 years and over in Australia at 31 December each year.
11 Population data are derived from those published in Australian Demographic Statistics (cat.no. 3101.0). Figures are revised as more recent data become available.
12 The following table includes the estimated resident population of persons 15 years and over and the total population figure at 31 December. The number of people 15 years and over is used to calculate the apparent per person consumption in this issue:
13 Revised figures for Apparent per person consumption (15 years and over) are due to revision in Estimated Resident Population of persons aged 15 years and over in Australia at 31 December, and where applicable to revision in import clearance data in the Amount of alcohol available for consumption. Revisions to quantities of beer and wine have been made after adjustments to import clearance codes used in the analysis of apparent consumption data.
14 Import clearance codes used to calculate the Ready To Drinks (RTD) available for consumption quantity are: 2208.90.2036 (distilled alcoholic beverages, nes, having an alcoholic strength by volume exceeding 1.15% but not exceeding 10% volume) and 2208.90.2037 (spirituous beverages, nes, having an alcoholic strength by volume exceeding 1.15% but not exceeding 10% volume).
