USQ has an agreement with the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) to provide public use of Confidentialised Unit Record Files (CURFs) for research purposes. CURFs contain unidentifiable data from ABS surveys in the form of a unit record and are accessible from the ABS Microdata website. The unit level for a CURF may be a household, an income unit or a family. The datasets have been confidentialised.
CURFs microdata is the most detailed level of ABS statistical data available, and is used by researchers in Universities, Government and the private sector. Information on publication output is available from the ABS Microdata website. The Australian Bureau of Statistics maintains a List of Available CURFs and a List of Expected CURFs. Technical papers and user guides are available for some datasets.
Surveys available include the following research areas:
