This identifier is an unique ID for each individual person in the CURF.

An individual can have up to 8 records in the CURF, since respondents are selected in the Labour Force Survey (LFS) for 8 consecutive months (see Number of months captured in survey [ABSNMTH]).

The Record ID has 15 characters and is an amalgam of 3 other key identifiers. It has the following format:

      • LLFS
          A prefix of letters (Longitudinal Labour Force Survey).

      • YYMM
          Year (2 digits) and Month (2 digits) for when the household was first selected in the LFS.
          Example. 0801 = January 2008.
          See First month of selection in survey [ABSFMTH]

      • HHHHH
          A 5 digit number to uniquely identify a household within the group that was first selected in the month identified.
          Households are assigned a number between 00001 and 06275, depending on the number of households in the group.
          See Household ID [ABSHID].

      • PP
          A 2 digit number to uniquely identify a person in the household.
          Persons are assigned a number between 1 and 23, depending on the number people in the household.
          See Person ID [ABSPID].
These record identifiers form the basis of the CURFs hierarchical structure, which is explored in more detail in File Structure and Identifiers.
