I received this today from our friends at IPUMS. Apologies if you
already received this. It deals with the Differential Privacy
protection that we have been hearing about. Both IPUMS has a report
and the Census Bureau's Chief Scientist
(https://arxiv.org/pdf/1808.06303.pdf). I pulled the links out for
the articles below in case they do come through.
As users of Census Data products, this is an issue and area that we
all need to understand and be cognizant of. I happen to agree with
our IPUMS friends that the procedures will have a large impact on
public use data products and could limit the use of microdata, but
that is my opinion.
