DATA ITEM LISTS

The Characteristics of Recent Migrants Survey, November 2010 (CORMS) comprised a questionnaire. The questionnaire contained 10 modules and approximately 100 questions, which resulted in approximately 50 data items. Including data items obtained from the Labour Force Survey (LFS), there were approximately 80 data items on the SEW final file.

Users intending to purchase either the CURF or the TableBuilder should ensure that the data they require, and the level of detail they need, are available in these products.

CURF Data

The CORMS Expanded CURF contains 47,099 confidentialised respondent records from the survey. Subject to the limitations of the sample size and the data classifications used, it is possible to interrogate the CURF, product tabulations and undertake statistical analyses to individual specifications.

The CURF file contains 60 data items. A list of data items available for use with the CURF, including relevant population and classification details, can be found on the Downloads tab.

For a complete list of all data items included on the CURF, refer to the Excel spreadsheet in the Downloads tab. The data item spreadsheet has 10 worksheets:

  • table of content

  • data items on labour force characteristics
  • data items on migrant characteristics
  • data items on visa status characteristics
  • data items on education characteristics
  • data items on employment characteristics

The data item list provides a code to all populations used in the derivations of the data items and each data item has a code associated with it to enable users to link between the two worksheets.
