MONTH IDENTIFIERS

SURVEY MONTH ID

This identifier is an unique ID number for each month of the period January 2008 to December 2010. It relates to the labour force survey conducted in that month.

Each person from a private dwelling can have up to eight records (rows) worth of data. The Survey month ID identifies the month related to each particular record of data.

People in special dwellings (see Residence Status [URSTATC]) only have one record of data, and the Survey month ID refers to the month that this data was collected (see Household ID [ABSHID]).

The Survey month ID is either 3 or 4 digits in length. The last 2 digits relate to the calendar month, where '01' is January, '02' is February and so on up to '12' for December. The leading digit or digits relate to the year, where 8 is 2008, 9 is 2009 and 10 is 2010.

These identifiers form the basis of the CURFs structure, which is explored in more detail in File Structure and Identifiers.
