Options for encoding names for data linking at the Australian Bureau of Statistics [article]

Chris Culnane, Benjamin I. P. Rubinstein, Vanessa Teague

There are several reasonable interpretations: 1.  ...  This is an extremely weak security model which is not appropriate for ABS because it requires complete protection of all the data.  ...
