This Expanded Confidentialised Unit Record File (CURF) provides detailed data relating to Participation in Sport and Physical Recreation that was collected in the 2009–10 Multipurpose Household Survey.
As well as general demographic data such as age, sex and country of birth, it contains a range of data items relating to the number and characteristics of people who participate in a variety of sport and physical activities. The data relate to persons aged 15 years and over who participated in sport and physical recreation activities as players, competitors or persons who physically undertook an activity.
The CURF enables users to tabulate, manipulate and analyse data to their individual specifications. Steps to confidentialise the data have been taken that ensures the confidentiality of respondents while at the same time maintaining the integrity of the data and optimising its content. This includes removing any information that might uniquely identify an individual and reducing the level of detail for some data items.
The Expanded CURF is accessible through the Remote Access Data Laboratory (RADL) or the ABS Data Laboratory (ABSDL). The publication, Technical Manual: Participation in Sport and Physical Recreation, Expanded CURF, Australia, 2009–10 (cat. no. 4177.0.55.001), explains the data content, technical details and conditions of use and should be used in conjunction with this CURF. An Excel spreadsheet listing all the data items available on the Expanded CURF accompanies the Technical Manual.
