The need for data products that combine information across databases and organisations is increasing. Overwhelmingly, the data from which these data products are built is reported at the individual entity level and is confidential.
Ethical survey practice and often law or regulation demands that confidential data pertaining to individual entities not be revealed through data products. Confidentiality concerns have been addressed by researchers over decades, resulting in a suite of methods for statistical disclosure limitation (SDL) used by national statistical offices.
Until recently, however, the effects of disclosure limitation methods on data quality, completeness and usability have been largely ignored.
The interplay between data confidentiality methods and data quality and usability is the unifying subject of this course.
