PRAM is a probabilistic, perturbative method for disclosure protection of categorical variables in microdata files. If PRAM is to be applied, several issues should be carefully considered. The microdata file will usually contain a specific structure, e.g., a hierarchical structure when all members of a household are present in the data file. To what extent should PRAM conserve that structure? How should a user of the perturbed file deal with variables that can (logically) be deduced from other… CONTINUE READING
