The Fundamental Principles of a Network Flow Disclosure Avoidance System
Colleen M. Sullivan
This paper discusses the network flow methodology used to apply complementary suppressions
to economic tabular data. We begin in Section 2 with a description of the elemental principles
of the network flow method. In Section 3, we present a system of two dimensional tables with
"appendages," and we provide concluding remarks in Section 4. A reading section is provided
for those interested in more detail.
