This publication is no longer produced, for CURFs released after 2007 refer to the Microdata: Characteristics of Recent Migrants, Australia (cat. no. 6250.0.25.002) for supporting information.
This publication provides information about the data available from the Characteristics of Recent Migrants survey released up to 2007, in the form of a basic Confidentialised Unit Record File (CURF). The statistics compiled from this basic CURF were compiled from the Characteristics of Recent Migrants Survey (CORMS), which was conducted as a supplement to the ABS Monthly Population Survey (MPS), in November every three years.
This publication explains the data content, technical details and conditions of use for the basic CURF and is available on the ABS website and via the 'Information by' link on the RADL home page.
