Please note: Percentages may not tally to 100% due to rounding. Criminal offences vary between each state and territory. Data presented here differ slightly from the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) National Drug Strategy Household Survey report due to different analysis methodologies. The AIHW analysis excluded the “don’t know enough to say” category, thus changing the proportions in the remaining response categories.
