DATA ITEMS

The detailed data item list and categories for the TUS CURFs is contained in Appendix 2. The data item list contains an index based on subject and an index based on field name. The data items included on the CURFs, and the categories within the data items, differ between the basic and expanded CURFs. The expanded CURF contains more variables than the basic CURF as well as more detailed data for selected variables. Table 8.1 shows the differences between the 2006 basic and expanded TUS CURFs. Most of the differences result from the difference in the level of detail and the difference in the maximum household size permitted on the basic and expanded CURFs. On the basic CURF, households with 7 or more members have been reduced to a maximum of 6, while on the expanded CURF households with 9 or more members have been reduced to a maximum of 8.
