Data Privacy in confidential administrative micro data


"The demand of comprehensive and innovative data is constantly growing in social science. In particular data of social security agencies become more and more attractive because of their special advantages. In contrast to survey data, administrative data offer a census with highly reliable information over long time periods. These data are restricted in their usage and are subject to confidentiality of social security. To make them accessible for researchers they either have to be anonymised before usage, or research output has to be released after disclosure review procedures. This results in a conflict of high potential for research purposes versus maximal data protection at the same time: Our paper discusses the trade-off between maintaining a high capability of research potential while protecting data, as well as the satisfaction of these demands at the Research Data Centre of the Federal Employment Agency at the Institute for Employment Research in Germany."
