UPCOMING CURF releases * New HIES CURF - what is it?The new Household Expenditure Survey and Survey of Income and Housing 2003- 2004 (HIES) CURF is expected to be released in May 2006.
For the first time the Household Expenditure Survey (HES) and Survey of Income and Housing (SIH) 2003- 2004 will be available as a combined CURF. These surveys, which were previously conducted separately, have been integrated on a six year cycle from 2003-04. The SIH will run every second year (2005-06, 2007-08, 2009-10) with a HES component every third cycle (2009-10).
The individual files within the CURF will be structured to allow results for the separate HES and SIH sub-components to be produced with a minimum of effort while reducing the risk of error for users.
The cost of the combined CURF will be $8,420 for access to all versions including the Expanded data via the Remote Access Data Laboratory (RADL) and Basic data CD-ROM (also available via RADL). These CURFs are also available under the standard ABS/AVCC CURF arrangements for teaching and academic research purposes.
The Technical Paper released with the HIES CURF will provide additional information on the content of the data set. To find out how to apply for access to either the Basic or Expanded Household Expenditure Survey and Survey of Income and Housing 2003- 2004 (HIES) CURF go to Applying for CURFs step by step (.pdf).
