Microdata: Multipurpose Household Survey, Expanded CURF, Australia, 2008-09 (cat. no. 4100.0.55.001) Expected release: June 2010

This Expanded Confidentialised Unit Record File (CURF) from the 2008-2009 Multipurpose Household Survey provides statistics on four topics: Crime Victimisation, Barriers and Incentives to Labour Force Participation, Retirement and Retirement Intentions and Household Use of Information Technology. The CURF also contains other socio-demographic information such as educational qualifications, occupation and industry of current job and personal and household income.

Users are able to tabulate, manipulate and analyse data to their individual specifications. Steps to confidentialise the dataset are taken to ensure integrity of data, optimise its content and maintain confidentiality of respondents. They include removing any information that might uniquely identify an individual, reducing the level of detail for some items and collapsing some categories.

The Expanded CURF is only available through the Remote Access Data Laboratory (RADL) and the ABS Data Laboratory (ABSDL). A technical manual explaining data content, technical details and conditions of use is available through Technical Manual: Multipurpose Household Survey, Expanded CURF, Australia, 2008-09 (cat. no 4100.0)
