ILLICIT DRUGS

The ABS has developed the Australian Standard Classification of Drugs of Concern, (Cat. No. 1248.0) to encourage comparability of data from different sources. It also plans to increase analysis and dissemination of drug data, with an information paper being released in early 2001 that brings together ABS and non-ABS sources of information. An article on deaths due to drug abuse is being scheduled for the 2001 issue of Australian Social Trends.
