2006 Census of Population and Housing: Census Sample File
|The 2006 Census Sample File (CSF) is a comprehensive Confidentialised Unit Record File (CURF) of Census variables, containing a small random sample of private households and associated persons, and a small random sample of persons in non-private dwellings. |
The CSF is produced for model testing and statistical analysis. It is designed and produced after consultation with past users of CSFs and other major users of Census data. The structure of the 2006 CSF is similar to the 2001 Household Sample File (HSF).
Most of the variables available from the 2006 Census are available on the CSF. However, some classifications, such as birthplace, industry, occupation and qualification are collapsed to less detailed levels, in order to protect the confidentiality of personal data.
Detailed technical documentation and sampling errors associated with the file are contained in the technical documentation provided with the file.
