Disclosure Control Policy for Tables

In order to bring about a consistent and coherent approach to confidentiality protection for common families of outputs, standards for the disclosure control of tabular outputs have been developed by ONS.

These standards set out minimum requirements for disclosure control methods that will ensure confidentiality protection of tabular outputs for public release.

Two standards are presented here for the disclosure control of tables produced from surveys and from administrative data sources.

They have been approved as GSS policy by the GSS Sources and Standards Committee. They have also been approved as GSR policy.
