Drugs - ABCI Consultancy

After the successful outcome of an earlier joint project between the ABS and Australian Bureau of Criminal Intelligence (ABCI), which culminated in 1999 with the publication of the National Illicit Drug Statistics Framework (NIDSF), the ABS is continuing to foster a close relationship with the ABCI through the provision of statistical services and support.

In September 2000 the ABS outposted a statistician to the ABCI to assist in the preparation of the Australian Illicit Drugs Report (AIDR) and the implementation of the national standards contained within the NIDSF. It is expected that the consultancy will be beneficial to both the ABCI and the ABS, in that it will progress the shared goal of establishing a quality illicit drug statistics collection that will satisfy the joint requirements of the ABCI Australian Illicit Drug Report (AIDR) and those of the ABS' National Crime Statistics Unit (NCSU).

It is anticipated that the benefits of implementing the national standards outlined in the NIDSF, that is, of providing reliable and comparable State/Territory data, will not only be enjoyed by users of these two collections but ultimately by all users of criminal justice drug data.
