Presentation on Census Data Archiving: Confidentiality and Anonymizaton
Ethiopia, Addis Ababa, 20-23rd September,2011
The mission statement of the Central Statistical Office (CSO)is to provide a comprehensive national statistical system yielding timely, relevant and high quality statistical information to Government, private secor and the wider nation and interntational community.
The CSO is an organization responsible for the collection, compilation, analysis and dissemination of all official statistical data relating to the economic and social activities of the country
For this data to be effective, it has to be disseminated
CSO has a dissemination strategy in place.
Zambia Has so far conducted five Censuses
All these have been successfully conducted and data archived and disseminated
The basic goal of confidentiality measures is to keep data users from being able to identify a record for any unit of observation, but still provide the data users with the data they require.
How do we do this?
The Director of the Central Statistical Office has to authorize access to information. Before being granted access to the dataset or any other information produced by the CSO, all users have
To formally agree to the following;
To make no copies of any files or portions of files to which he/she is granted access except those authorized by the Central Statistical Office
Not to use any technique in an attempt to learn the identity of any person or establishment.
To hold in the strictest confidence the identification of any establishment or individual that may be inadvertently revealed in any documents or analysis
