Disclosure control policy for tables

We have developed standards for the disclosure control of tables in outputs. This makes sure we have a consistent approach to protecting confidentiality in tables released to the public, for common families of outputs.

The two standards presented apply to tables produced from:

  • surveys

  • administrative data sources

This document has been approved as GSS policy by the GSS Statistical Policy and Standards Committee.

It has also been approved as GSR policy.
