Comparison of Systems Implementing Automated Cell Suppression for Economic Statistics
Nancy Kirkendall and Gordon Sande
Abstract:Three automated cell suppression systems were applied to tables from the U.S. Energy Information Administration's Manufacturing Energy Consumption Survey. The four main tables are of moderate size with a complex interrelationship that presents a challenge for confidentiality processing. The article describes, compares, and contrasts the three confidentiality systems, and their application to this complex data set. The result illustrates the importance of auditing proposed suppression patterns, however they are derived, to assure that they offer adequate protection.
Keywords:Cell suppression; statistical confidentiality; disclosure control; economic statistics; residual disclosure.
