- Users of the 2008 NATSISS CURF were advised on the incorrect derivation of two data items in the CURF: RSKY12M (Risky alcohol consumption - 12 month (2002 comparison)) and RSKY2WK (Risky alcohol consumption - 2 weeks (2002 comparison)). These items should not be used to calculate the risk levels of alcohol consumption. Instead, to derive chronic risky/high risk levels of alcohol consumption, users were advised to use DALYALC (Average daily consumption of alcohol in last 12 months (standard drinks)). To derive acute risky/high risk levels of alcohol consumption, users were advised to use ALCQ7C (Most alcohol consumed in 1 day in last 2 weeks (standard drinks)).


-The pages 'Using the CURFs' and 'Survey products' of the NATSISS Users' Guide and the 'Data item list' data cube have been updated to include details of the third NATSISS CURF release - the Detailed State/Territory by ASGC Remoteness Structure CURF.
