This publication provides information about the basic and expanded Confidentialised Unit Record Files (CURFs) from the 2005-06 Survey of Income and Housing (SIH). Two microdata files are available from this survey:

    • a basic SIH CURF available on CD-ROM or through the Remote Access Data Laboratory (RADL), and
    • an expanded SIH CURF accessible only through the RADL.

The expanded CURF contains more detailed data for some variables than the basic CURF, as well as some additional variables.

The RADL is a secure on-line data query service that clients can access via the ABS website. Because the CURFs are kept within the ABS environment, the ABS is able to release more detailed data via the RADL than can be made available on CD-ROM. Further information about this facility is available on the ABS website (see Services We Provide, CURFs).

The Technical Manual is available from the 'Details' tab for this product.
