Health of Queenslanders 2022 Report
Apr 21, 2023
The Queensland Chief Health Officer has released the annual “Health of Queenslanders” report. The report contains a wide range of data on trends in health issues, including specific data on alcohol and other drugs. The report pulls data from other major population health studies including the National Drug Strategy Household Survey, and in many cases, you can focus on trends within a particular hospital and health service region. This year’s report highlights the increasing links between socioeconomic status and tobacco smoking, the increase in vaping, and the slow decline in levels of risky drinking across the Queensland population.
