Definition Edit

In inference control

[s]ome cell values (eg small ones such as 1-5) in statistical data can present a greater risk of re-identification. Depending on the circumstances, small numbers can either be suppressed, or the values manipulated. . . . If a large number of cells are affected, the level of aggregation could be changed. For example, the data could be linked to wider geographical areas or age-bands could be widened.[1]
