This paper by Jane Longhurst, Nicola Tromans and Caroline Young (Office for National Statistics, UK) describes the strategy that is being employed by the ONS to develop an Statistical Disclosure Control solution for UK 2011 Census tabular outputs. Publishing aggregate or individual data carries always the risk that individuals or entities could be identified and confidential information about them could be released. The aim of Statistical Disclosure Control is to ensure that statistical outputs provide as much value to the users while protecting the confidentiality of information.
