A confidentiality framework for magnitude data: CS11-613/91-8E-PDF

"Data collected by Statistical Agencies are almost always collected under the seal of confidentiality. To ensure confidentiality. Statistical Agencies use various methods to avoid or limit the risk of statistical disclosure. Most of these methods have been developed without a rigorous definition of statistical disclosure. This explains the difference that can observed between the methods used by a Statistical Agency. We propose a confidentiality framework for magnitude data that allow for the development of a consistent methodology accross all products of a Statistical Agency. The cornerstone of the framework is a definition of statistical disclosure"--Abstract.
