Assessment of Regression Based Disclosure Risk in Statistical Databases
Michael A. Palley
Abstract:Regression based disclosure can threaten the confidentiality of data stored in statistical databases. This holds true even when the database employs inference controls. This article describes database characteristics that correspond to high and low levels of risk of regression based disclosure. This leads to guidelines for the assessment of a statistical database's degree of risk. Identification of factors that contribute to disclosure risk is a first step in the development of new inference controls.
Keywords:Confidentiality; statistical databases; disclosure; database management systems; security.
