Abstract:

 

This comment is informed by research with collaborators through the Privacy Tools for Sharing Research Data project at Harvard University. In this broad, multidisciplinary 1 project, we are exploring the privacy issues that arise when collecting, analyzing, and disseminating research datasets containing personal information. Our efforts are focused on translating the theoretical promise of new measures for privacy protection and data utility into practical tools and approaches. In particular, our work aims to help realize the tremendous potential from social science research data by making it easier for researchers to share their data using privacy protective tools.
