The U.S. Bureau of the Census is in the business of collecting and disseminating data. The technological revolution of the 1980s and the accessibility of personal computing to the general public have fueled a rising demand for this data. This technology is allowing data users to handle increasingly large and detailed data sets and tabulations. Unfortunately, the more information the Bureau provides, the greater the possibility that a user can determine exact data values belonging to a particular respondent.
