This Information Paper provides information about the release of microdata relating to the 2009 Survey of Disability, Ageing and Carers (SDAC) conducted throughout Australia during the period April to December 2009. These microdata are available in the form of a Basic Confidentialised Unit Record File (CURF).

Only a Basic CURF will be released on May 2, 2011. Details on the availability/timing of an Expanded (CURF) will be released after this date.

Microdata are the most detailed information available from a survey and are generally the answers to most individual questions or the data derived from answers to two or more questions.

This paper contains details of the basic unit record file available via CD-ROM or accessed through the Remote Access Data Laboratory (RADL) or the ABS Data Laboratory (ABSDL). It explains background information, data content, technical details and the conditions of use of the CURF and should be used as a reference document when interrogating the file. An Excel spreadsheet listing all the data items available on the Basic CURF, a copy of both the Household and Establishment questionnaires, and a set of Prompt Cards (related only to the Household component) accompanies this paper.

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