This Technical Manual provides information about the release of microdata relating to the Participation in Sport and Physical Recreation topic that was collected in the 2009–10 Multipurpose Household Survey. These microdata are available in the form of an Expanded Confidentialised Unit Record File (CURF).

Microdata are the most detailed information available from a survey and are generally the answers to most individual questions or the data derived from answers to two or more questions.

An Expanded CURF provides the maximum level of detail possible when releasing unit record files, while at the same time maintaining the integrity of the data and the confidentiality of individual respondent information.

The CURF can be accessed through the Remote Access Data Laboratory (RADL) or the ABS Data Laboratory (ABSDL). For information on applying for access to ABS CURFs, see the CURF Microdata Entry Page on the ABS website.

This manual explains the data content, technical details and the conditions of use of the CURF and should be used as a reference document when interrogating the file. An Excel spreadsheet listing all the data items available on the CURF accompanies this manual.
