A CURF contains unidentifiable unit records from key ABS Surveys.

This listing provides a general description of the contents of an individual CURF to enable the selection of appropriate data for research projects.

Labour Mobility (2006) Basic

The Labour Mobility Survey was conducted in Australia in February 2006. This Basic CURF presents information about people aged 15 years and over who worked at some time during the year ending February 2006.

The February 2006 survey was redesigned and data items and populations that referred to locality, are not available, as the information was not collected in the February 2006 survey.

New data items were introduced to provide information on people who had worked with their current employer/business for one year or more, and had changes in the work undertaken with their current employer/business in the last 12 months. These data items include whether promoted or transferred, whether changed usual hours worked and whether changed occupation.

A number of socio-demographic data items were also collected and are included on the CURF, including capital city/balance of state; State/Territory of usual residence; age; sex; family status; marital status; birthplace and year of arrival in Australia. Also included are details on labour force status; occupation; industry; educational qualifications; employment type; status in employment; full-time/part-time status; duration with employer/business; reason for ceasing last job; paid sick/holiday leave entitlements and number of employers or businesses in the last 12 months.

For more information and detailed list of data items, please refer to the Technical Manual: Labour Force Survey and Labour Mobility, Basic and Expanded CURF, Australia (cat.no. 6202.0.30.005).

The Basic CURF is available on CD-ROM, and/or via the Australian Bureau of Statistics Remote Access Data Laboratory (ABS RADL ).
