The record identifiers are used to identify the records in the CURF that belong to the same individual, family, or household.
An ID is assigned to each individual in the survey, so that their responses in different months can be compared and contrasted longitudinally across time.
Similarly, Family and Household IDs are also assigned to the records, so that respondents who belong to the same family or household can be grouped and analysed as a unit.
These record identifiers form the basis of the CURFs hierarchical structure, which is explored in more detail in File Structure and Identifiers.
