This is an expanded Confidentialised Unit Record File (CURF) from the Innovation Survey 2003. The Innovation survey provides statistics on business innovation in Australia and key characteristics of innovating businesses. The availability of this information facilitates development of government policy and practices to improve Australia's international competitiveness by supporting and promoting innovation in Australian business.
Users are able to tabulate, manipulate and analyse data to their individual specifications and steps to confidentialise the dataset are taken to ensure integrity of data, optimise its content and maintain confidentiality of providers. They include removing any information that might uniquely identify a business.
The CURF includes metadata files and documentation to enable users to read the data into SAS or SPSS software. Users can then analyse the data using any method supported by SAS or SPSS, including cross tabulation and correlative analyses.
The CURF is only available through the Remote Access Data Laboratory (RADL). A Technical manual explaining data content, technical details and conditions of use is available on the ABS web site and via the 'Information by' link on the RADL home page.
For more information, see Access to ABS CURFs from the Services we provide page.
