The Expanded GSS 2006 CURF is available only through the Remote Access Data Laboratory (RADL)

An Expanded Confidentialised Unit Record File (CURF) from the 2006 General Social Survey, a multi-dimensional social survey that ranges across many aspects of life, designed to enable analysis of the interrelationships in social circumstances and outcomes, including the exploration of multiple advantage and disadvantage. The data provides information on people's health, family relationships, social and community involvement, education, employment, income and financial stress, assets and liabilities, housing and mobility, crime and safety, transport, attendance at culture and leisure venues, and sports attendance and participation.

The file is only available through the Remote Access Data Laboratory (RADL) and contains more variables than the basic file, as well as more detailed data for selected variables. Users are able to run STATA, SAS and/or SPSS data queries against the Basic and Expanded CURFs to which they have approved access in the RADL. A User Guide explaining data content, technical details and conditions of use is provided with the file.
