Speaker: James Chipperfield, ABS
The aim of this talk is to give my perspective on some methodological challenges around confidentiality and data integration over the last 10 years that I have worked in the Methodology Division of the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
Some themes include: the impact of retention of Census name and address in linking personal information; how record linkage has evolved within ABS; the conflict between the ABS’ mission to promote informed decision making and the Census and Statistics Act, which requires that the risk of identification of a respondent is “unlikely”; and related methods and systems that the ABS has developed.
James has worked in the Methodology Division of the Australian Bureau of Statistics since 1997 as a statistician. During this time he has worked on a range of data integration and data access and confidentiality problems. He is currently an EL1 in the Data Access and Confidentiality Unit, is Adjunct Associate Professor at UoW, Associate Editor of Survey Methodology and has published 17 peer-reviewed journal articles. He enjoys running and yoga.
