The future of statistical disclosure control [article]

Mark Elliot, Josep Domingo-Ferrer
2018 arXiv   pre-print
Statistical disclosure control (SDC) was not created in a single seminal paper nor following the invention of a new mathematical technique, rather it developed slowly in response to the practical challenges  ...  SDC's subsequent emergence as a specialised academic field was an outcome of three interrelated socio-technical changes: (i) the advent of accessible computing as a research tool in the 1980s meant that  ...  Usually this will involve a mixture of automated and manual processes.  ...
