SECURE STORAGE OF ABS MICRODATA
BASIC CURF MICRODATA OUTPUT WHICH CAN BE DISCLOSED
Aggregate outputs from your basic CURF research may be shared or published. Examples of outputs that do not reveal microdata and are not required to remain in a secure environment include:
BASIC CURF STORAGE REQUIREMENTS
The following requirements apply for microdata and outputs which must be kept secure.
DataLab output and working files that are within the DataLab system must not be removed or shared with any other person. This includes not capturing any on-screen information or discussing uncleared DataLab output with users who have not been approved for that microdata or project.
To use or share DataLab output outside the DataLab system, you must request clearance of any DataLab output by an ABS officer. DataLab output that has been cleared by the ABS may be shared or published and does not need to be securely stored.
DataLab projects may involve collaboration with other researchers in your organisation or in other organisations. See Collaborating on microdata research for further information about how you can work safely with DataLab collaborations and project workspaces.
RADL 'KEEP SECURE' OUTPUT
The RADL may hold output if it fails automated system protections, which an ABS officer will review. If the ABS officer decides that the output can be released to the user, but is too detailed for general release, the file will be provided as 'Keep Secure' output. This classification requires that the output be treated as highly confidential at all times. 'Keep Secure' output includes any printouts of unit record information, as well as analytical output that has been designated as 'Keep Secure'. 'Keep Secure' output cannot be shared between users who do not have access to the source microdata, nor with users in other organisations unless approval has been provided by the ABS. Such output may be used in further analysis, but cannot be published.
