This is one of three reports highlighting the results from the first Alcohol Use in New Zealand Survey (AUiNZ). This report describes the high-level results for all respondents.
Other reports look at the AUiNZ results for Māori respondents and public attitudes on policy interventions to reduce alcohol harm. Detailed information, including regional breakdowns, is available on Kupe, our data repository.
The AUiNZ provides information about the attitudes and behaviours of New Zealanders towards alcohol. It is a nationwide survey of New Zealand residents aged 18 years and over, using a mix of self-completion methods. A total of 4,545 adults completed the survey between August 2019 and March 2020, including 1,285 Māori.
