This Expanded Confidentialised Unit Record File (CURF) from the survey of Characteristics of Recent Migrants provides statistics about migration category, country of birth, proficiency in spoken English, educational attainment on arrival and since arrival, employment prior to arrival and since arrival, and sources of 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). A technical manual explaining data content, technical details and conditions of use is available through Technical Manual: Characteristics of Recent Migrants, Expanded CURF, Australia, Nov 2010 (cat. no. 6250.0.55.001).

For information on applying for access to ABS CURFs, see the CURF Microdata Entry Page on the ABS website.
