Imputation for Disclosure Avoidance

Component ID: #ti187058933


The U.S. Census Bureau collects its survey and census data under Title 13 of the U.S. Code which promises confidentiality to its respondents. The agency also has the responsibility of releasing data for the purpose of statistical analysis. The goal is to release as much high quality data as possible without violating the pledge of confidentiality. We apply disclosure a voidance techniques prior to publicly releasing our data products to protect the confidentiality of our respondents and their data. This paper discusses the various types of data we releases, the disclosure a voidance techniques currently being used, and how they may be seen as a form of imputation.
