The 1991 Census Basic Household Sample File consists of unidentified statistical records containing sample data from the 1991 Census Household File - a one per cent sample of private households and associated persons and a one per cent sample of persons in non-private dwellings. All the variables and most of the associated classificatory details available from the 1991 Census Household File are provided in the HSF. However, to further reduce the risk of identification, the classificatory details of variables such as age, industry and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander indicator have been collapsed, and geographic identifiers are only provided for population centres which had 500,000 or more people counted in the 1991 Census.

The file consists of records for 168,541 persons from 67,092 families, living in 63,113 households.
