This page sets out the five key indicators used by the Northern Territory (NT) Government to measure alcohol-related harm.
These indicators are widely accepted as reliable indicators for measuring levels of alcohol-related harm in Australia. The collection and reporting of these key indicators is an initiative under the Action Plan.
The Action Plan February 2019 Update reports progress against four key areas:
1. Strengthening Community Responses – Healthy Communities and Effective and Accessible Treatment
2. Effective Liquor Regulation
3. Research, Data and Evaluation
4. Comprehensive, Collaborative and Coordinated Approach by Government

This document sets the progress against the NT Government Position on Alcohol Policies and Legislation Review Final Report Recommendations released 27 February 2018.
This report was commissioned by the Northern Territory Government. It was prepared as a partnership between Menzies School of Health Research and the South Australian Centre for Economic Studies based at the University of Adelaide. This report sets out the social and economic costs and harms of alcohol consumption in the Northern Territory.
This report presents an overview of the social and economic costs and harms of alcohol consumption in the NT. It has achieved this through the analysis and presentation of a broad array of quantitative data. It is estimated that the total yearly social cost of alcohol in the NT is estimated to be $1.38 billion, with tangible costs of $701.3 million, and intangible costs of $685.5 million.
Using data gathered from 2015/16, this report provides a current evidence-based account of alcohol consumption in the NT. It uses well-established methodologies to quantify and explain the harms and costs of alcohol consumption in the NT.
This study provides an assessment of how much treatment is currently provided; how much should be provided to meet current demand; and the challenges, barriers and opportunities associated with the planning and delivery of alcohol treatment services in the NT. It responds to multiple recommendations outlined in the NT Alcohol Policies and Legislation Review (Riley, 2017); and a subsequent Northern Territory Government (NTG) commitment to undertake the study in the NT Alcohol Harm Minimisation Action Plan 2018-2019 (NTG 2018).
This study has been led jointly by Menzies School of Health Research and the Drug Policy Modelling Program (DPMP) at the University of New South Wales, and in partnership with the Aboriginal Medical Services Alliance of the NT (AMSANT).
