The 2011-12 Survey of Income and Housing (SIH) collected information using a household and personal questionnaires. The Basic and Expanded CURFs contain information at household, income unit, person and loans levels. Users intending to purchase the CURFs should ensure that the data they require, and the level of detail they need, are available in these products.

Subject to the limitations of sample size, the data classifications used, and the conditions of use, it is possible to interrogate the CURF data, produce tabulations and undertake statistical analyses to individual specifications.

A complete list of all data items included on the CURF, including relevant population and classification details, is available in the Downloads tab. The spreadsheet has 11 worksheets containing the following information:
