Prevalence

Surveys consistently show that cannabis is the most commonly used illicit drug among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, with men more likely to use cannabis than women [33725][34600][26737].  Key surveys containing information on prevalence of cannabis use are: the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander social survey (NATSISS), the National drug strategy household survey (NDSHS) and the Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health survey (AATSIHS) which can be found under publications in this section. For a summary of statistical information updated yearly on illicit drug use among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, see also our latest Overview of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health status.
