ECAS 2018 Course:
Statistical Disclosure Control for Official Statistics
February, 20-22 2018
ENSAI – Campus Ker Lann, Bruz, France

This three day course will introduce basic and advanced concepts of statistical disclosure control, privacy and confidentiality. The topics covered include the motivation of statistical disclosure control in terms of disclosure risk scenarios and types of disclosure risk; measuring disclosure risk for traditional outputs: microdata and tabular data; common methods of statistical disclosure control applications; the impact of statistical disclosure control methods on utility. In addition, we introduce differential privacy which is a definition arising in computer science which provides formal and quantifiable guarantees of disclosure risk. The course also covers legal and ethical issues, examples of best practice and applications in statistical offices or health authorities, as well as workshops on differential privacy, anonymisation and controlled access and generating synthetic data.
This is an exciting and unique course bringing together experts around the world to deliver the latest developments in privacy and confidentiality which will be pitched at the post-graduate level and for those working at statistical agencies.
