Disclosure Avoidance and the 2018 Census Test: Release of the Source Code — Written By: Dr. John M. Abowd, Chief Scientist and Associate Director for Research and Methodology and Dr. Simson L. Garfinkel, Senior Computer Scientist for Confidentiality and Data Access — The 2020 Census marks the first time that any federal government statistical agency applied the rigorous rule of differential privacy – the gold-standard of privacy protection – to defend the confidentiality of survey responses for a nation-wide census. In the design of the 2020 Decennial Response Processing System (DRPS), the differential privacy algorithm is implemented in a system called the Disclosure Avoidance System (DAS), so-named because its purpose is to prevent unauthorized disclosure of confidential data.
