Automatic Cleaning and Linking of Historical Census Data Using Household Information

Zhichun Fu, Peter Christen, Mac Boot
2011 2011 IEEE 11th International Conference on Data Mining Workshops  
The key contribution of our approach is to first detect households, and to use this information to refine the cleaned data and improve the accuracy of linking records between census datasets.  ...  Historical census data can be used to reconstruct important aspects of a particular era in order to trace the changes in households and families.  ...  In this paper, we propose an approach for automatic cleaning and linking of historical census data using domain knowledge.  ...
