Census Sample File (CSF)
Most of the variables available from the 2011 Census will be available in the CSF. However, some classifications, such as birthplace, industry, occupation and qualification are collapsed to less detailed levels, in order to protect the confidentiality of personal data. The CSF is released under strict conditions and clients are required to sign an undertaking stating that the information will be used for statistical purposes only.
The CSF is suitable for advanced users of Census data and is available as a charged product. Microdata access is priced in accordance with the ABS Pricing Policy and Commonwealth Cost Recovery Guidelines, and access to CURFs is charged per organisation, not per person. Additional users of CURFs in an organisation will not incur additional charges and the ABS does not charge an annual or renewal fee for access.
For up-to-date information about the pricing of CURFs, refer to the Microdata prices web page.
