Appendix 6.1 - Disclosure of unidentified information


The Statistics Determination (Statutory Rules 1983 No. 19) made by the Minister under section 13 of the Census and Statistics Act 1905 provides for the disclosure, with the approval in writing of the Australian Statistician, of specified classes of information. Clause 7 of the Determination provides for the disclosure of unidentified individual statistical records in a manner that is not likely to enable the identification of the person or organisation to which they relate.

These disclosures are referred to as Confidentialised Unit Record Files (CURFs). More information on CURFs can be found in Quality and timeliness (chapter 12) and Dissemination of statistics (chapter 13).

Disclosure of unidentified information under clause 7 of the Statistics Determination are shown in the following table.
