Producing Government Data with Statistical Confidentiality Controls

December 17, 2014 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Tom Krenzke, Westat Statistical Group, and Ed Christopher, Federal Highway Administration

Plans to disseminate data to the public include statistical and confidentiality controls. Learn about statistical disclosure control (SDC) methods that have been used effectively in government data production processes. From data collection to data delivery and post-delivery trainings on data usage, this webinar will review statistical methods that are used in government data production processes to ensure the integrity of the released data while maintaining data subjects’ confidentiality. Participants will gain insights on various SDC approaches that also achieve feasible implementation. The discussion will conclude with an example from a special tabulation generated from the American Community Survey for the transportation community of over 400 transportation planning agencies across the US. The discussion illustrates a confidentiality protection perturbation technique that satisfied the Census Bureau’s Disclosure Review Board and data production staff, while at the same time provided the transportation planners with data they could use. In this webinar, statistical disclosure methods will be discussed along with the views of the user community.
