MicrodataDownload is a convenient way to access basic Confidentialised Unit Record Files (CURFs):
To subscribe to MicrodataDownload, see How to apply and Prices. If you already have a Registration Centre account you can log in to view the list of products your organisation has subscribed to.
If your organisation has previously purchased individual basic CURFs on CD-ROM, your organisation's Contact Officer can provide you with access to the data. Log into Registration Centre for a list of your organisation's Contact Officers. When using basic CURFs provided on CD-ROM or via MicrodataDownload, you and your organisation must still comply with the requirements listed above.
Basic CURF microdata are available on a wide range of topics such as Census of Population and Housing, health, education, labour force, migrants, crime, disability, ageing and carers. Available microdata contains information on which products are available as well as links to supporting materials such as data item lists. Compare access options and Frequently asked questions to see how basic CURF microdata files compare to other types of data and access.
