This paper describes computational experiments with an algorithm for control-rounding any series of linked tables such as typically occur in official statistics, for the purpose of confidentiality protection of the individual contributors to the tables. The resulting tables consist only of multiples of the specified rounding base, are additive, and have(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the study is to investigate the prognostic role of pre-treatment of markers of the systemic inflammatory response (neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR), and albumin) in patients with oropharyngeal carcinoma treated with chemoradiotherapy. METHODS A total of 251 patients with oropharyngeal squamous(More)
The plant pathogen Sclerotinia sclerotiorum can cause serious losses on lettuce crops worldwide and as for most other susceptible crops, control relies on the application of fungicides, which target airborne ascospores. However, the efficacy of this approach depends on accurate timing of these sprays, which could be improved by an understanding of the(More)
1. Introduction UK Census data is released in a number of different formats; standard pre-planned tables, commissioned tables requested by users and sample microdata. In addition in 2011 the aim is to release user defined tables via flexible table generating web-based software. Publishing aggregate or individual data carries the risk that individuals or(More)
This paper describes a geographically intelligent approach to disclosure control for protecting flexibly aggregated census data. Increased analytical power has stimulated user demand for more detailed information for smaller geographical areas and customized boundaries. Consequently it is vital that improved methods of statistical disclosure control are(More)
