  • About this Release

The Adult Literacy and Life Skills Survey Expanded CURF contains data items on the following topics: literacy skills; general information; linguistic information; parental information; labour force activities; literacy and numeracy practices; participation in education and training; social capital and well being; information and communications technology; and, household composition and 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. This includes 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 accessible through the Remote Access Data Laboratory (RADL). A Technical Manual explaining data content, technical details and conditions of use will be provided with the file.
