Apologies for late notice-some may have already heard about this but if you
are able to send out to your Post Grads listing we would be happy for them
to join the workshop
Statistics New Zealand are offering a free CURFs Workshop on campus this
This workshop is part of the Statistics for Universities agreement and aims
to encourage usage of the data they have on offer in this package.
Confidentialised Unit Record files (CURFs) are unit record data that have
been modified to protect the confidentiality of respondent’s while also
maintaining the integrity of the data.
They have had good turnouts at other universities so far and are keen to
offer it here. Participants will get hands on experience on accessing and
using CURFS at the workshop.
The CURF to be used will be the "Dynamics and Motivations for migration in
NZ" - after an initial description about the survey, it will be a practical
workshop involving data extraction from the CURF. The statistics analysis
package that will be used will be PASW Statistics 18 (ie the most recent
version of SPSS)
Overall the complete workshop including introductory information about the
Products & Services in the agreement and information about accessing CURFS
is estimated to take around 2-2.5 hours.
When: Thursday 11th February 2010 at 1.30pm
Where: Lab 20, Waikato Management School
Presenter: Kirsten Nissen, Statistical Analyst, Population Statistics Unit
