A New Approach to Protect Confidentiality for Census Microdata with Missing Values

  title={A New Approach to Protect Confidentiality for Census Microdata with Missing Values},
  author={Yajuan Si and Jerome P. Reiter},
Many statistical agencies release samples of census microdata, such as data on individual records, to the public. Protection of the sensitive values at high risk of disclosure or values of key identifiers is a crucial problem. Meanwhile, there usually exists missing data in the census. Multiple imputation has been a useful tool to protect data confidentiality and handle missing data. We propose a new approach to census microdata dissemination: sampling simultaneously with synthesis and missing…

Sampling With Synthesis: A New Approach for Releasing Public Use Census Microdata

It is demonstrated that sampling with synthesis can improve the quality of public use data relative to sampling followed by standard statistical disclosure limitation, and is illustrated on a population constructed with data from the U.S. Current Population Survey.

Applications of multiple imputation in medical studies: from AIDS to NHANES

This paper reviews three applications of Rubin's method about estimating the reporting delay in acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) surveillance systems for the purpose of estimating survival time after AIDS diagnosis and handling nonresponse in United States National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys (NHANES).

Multiple imputation when records used for imputation are not used or disseminated for analysis

When some of the records used to estimate the imputation models in multiple imputation are not used or available for analysis, the usual multiple imputation variance estimator has positive bias. We
