Informed Consent in U.S. Government Surveys

Abstract:
Informed consent is discussed as it is applied in U.S. Government social surveys and other information requests. From a survey of government surveys a representative group of 16 data programs is reviewed for the adequacy and propriety of their notifications to respondents. Special attention is given to requests for Social Security Numbers. The notifications are generally found to meet legal and moral requirements. Various implications of the notifications and major issues are discussed.

Keywords:
Privacy; confidentiality; social surveys.
