a factor with levels Australia NewZealand


Year ending in June of the given year


Data are total available pure alcohol content, for the three categories, divided by numbers of persons aged 15 years or more. The source data for New Zealand included quarterly figures from December 1997, and annual data to December for all years. The annual New Zealand figure to June 1998 required an estimate for September 1997 that was obtained by extrapolating back the third quarter trend line from later years.


Australian data are from http://www.abs.gov.au. For New Zealand data, go to http://www.stats.govt.nz/infoshare/ Click on 'Industry sectors' and then on 'Alcohol Available for Consumption - ALC'.
