ABOUT THE CURF
Users should be aware that the methodology applied to perturb data does not impact on the comparability between selected businesses.
Steps to confidentialise the data made available on the MCM CURF are designed to ensure the integrity of the dataset and optimise its content, while maintaining the confidentiality of respondents. Users intending to apply for access to the CURF should ensure that the data they require, at the level of detail they require, are available on the MCM CURF prior to submitting their application. The Data Item List for the MCM CURF is provided in Excel Spreadsheet format from the Downloads tab of this publication.
In using the data in the MCM CURF for analysis, it is important to understand how the ABS classifies businesses for statistical purposes. Statistical units are those entities from which statistics are collected, or about which statistics are compiled. In ABS economic statistics, the statistical unit is generally the business. The ABS Business Register is used to record information about statistical units and is used to create the frames for most ABS economic collections.
The ABS uses an economic statistics units model on the ABSBR to describe the characteristics of businesses, and the structural relationships between related businesses. Within large, complex and diverse business groups, the units model is used to define reporting units that can provide data to the ABS at suitable levels of detail.
This units model allocates businesses to one of two sub-populations:
Together these two sub-populations (of ABN units and TAUs) make up the ABSBR population.
