INTRODUCTION


This product provides a range of information about the release of microdata from the February 2012 Labour Force Survey (LFS) and the February 2012 Labour Mobility Survey including details about the survey methodology and how to use the CURF. Data item lists and information on the conditions of use and the quality of the microdata as well as the definitions used are also provided.

Microdata are the most detailed information available from a survey and are generally the responses to individual questions on the questionnaire or data derived from two or more questions and are released with the approval of the Australian Statistician.
