The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) retains copyright on the questions used in the 2002 NATSISS. They cannot be used in whole or in part in any other survey or study without the permission of the ABS. In general, when requested the ABS allows the use of questions to support data comparability but only in such a way that avoids any potential confusion about the role of the ABS in surveys run by other organisations, or perceptions that ABS endorses a survey run by another agency. For further information please contact the National Centre for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Statistics (NCATSIS) of the ABS on (02) 6252 5583.
The NATSISS was collected by personal interview, conducted using Computer Assisted Interviewing (CAI) in non-community areas and Pen and Paper Interviewing (PAPI) in remote communities. CAI involves the use of a computer to collect, store and transmit data relating to interviews conducted between interviewers and respondents. Under CAI, all sequencing is performed automatically and the appropriate question wording is automatically displayed.
The following documents present the questions from the CAI and PAPI questionnaires used for the NATSISS interviews. It includes questions relating to the household and questions asked of selected persons covered in the 2002 NATSISS. They also include the self-enumerated substance use component of the NATSISS.

This document presents the prompt cards used in the NATSISS interviews. Prompt cards were contained in a booklet carried by the NATSISS interviewers and displayed to the respondent at various points throughout the interview. Prompt cards allow respondents to choose a response to a question from a predetermined list of response categories. They are used to standardise common responses that can be given to particular questions and to ensure that the interview flows efficiently.
Important points to note regarding the NATSISS questionnaires:
