Microdata Access Strategies Section (MASS): New name, same great service
It's to do with our forward work program. ABS intends to develop more tools to access microdata, release more microdata products, and provide client-targeted education programs in support of this growing business. And we are developing strategies to do so. Access strategies; that's us.
I'm new to CURF Microdata. What do MASS do?

We are responsible for:
• supporting and encouraging greater use of ABS microdata through improved systems and services;
MASS manages access to Confidential Unit Record Files (CURFs) by external clients and supports CURF users, specifically, it provides a national centralised point for the development, management and support of all CURF related client access activities including:
