The Health and Lifestyles Survey (HLS) is a cross-sectional survey conducted every two years with a nationally-representative sample of New Zealand adults (aged 15 years and over). This report uses data from the 2010, 2012, and 2014 HLS to examine time trends in people’s attitudes and experiences relating to the availability and promotion of alcohol. It also uses the 2014 HLS data to assess differences in these alcohol-related attitudes by socio-demographic factors and drinking behaviour.
