Microdata from the 2008 National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Survey (NATSISS) is available in the form of three Expanded Confidentialised Unit Record Files (CURFs):
- a State/Territory CURF;
- a State/Territory by ASGC Remoteness Structure CURF; and
- a Detailed State/Territory by ASGC Remoteness Structure CURF.
The CURFs contain confidentialised data about each selected person and the household to which they belong. Data are available for the following topics: language and culture, social capital, life experiences, health, education, work, income and finances, housing and mobility, transport, information technology, and safety, crime and justice.
The files are only available through the Remote Access Data Laboratory (RADL) to clients who have signed a Deed of Undertaking regarding use of the information for statistical purposes.
Information about the data content, technical details and conditions of use is provided in the 2008 NATSISS Users' Guide (cat. no. 4720.0).
