This Technical Paper provides information regarding both the 1% and 5% Census Sample File Confidentialised Unit Record File (CURF) and replaces the previous technical paper addressing the 1% CSF CURF only.
The Census Sample File Technical Paper provides all relevant metadata for the files to enable users of the Census Sample File (CSF) to utilise the files to their potential.
The 2006 CSF CURF is a comprehensive unit record database of census characteristics, containing a random sample of person, family, household and dwelling data. The CSF is produced for model testing and statistical analysis.
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.
