This article considers the risk of disclosure in linked databases when statistical analysis of micro-data is permitted. The risk of disclosure needs to be balanced against the utility of the linked data. The current work specifically considers the disclosure risks in permitting regression analysis to be performed on linked data. A new attack based on partitioning of the database is presented.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
