The Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education (FARE, formerly known as AERF) have published the results of their "2012 Annual Alcohol Poll". In January and February this year, 1041 people from across Australia (188 from Queensland) were surveyed by Galaxy Research. There weren't many surprises in the results: 76% of respondents believe that Australia has a problem with excessive alcohol use, 75% of respondents thought that more needs to be done to reduce the harm from excessive alcohol use, and 64% thought that all alcohol advertising should be banned on television before 8.30pm.
This initiative is funded by the Queensland Government.
