Abstract

The primary objective of a National Statistical System (NSS) is the collection of socio-economic information on the individuals of a population (firms, persons, households, administrations) and from that, the production of aggregated information, either on the whole population or on subgroups of the population. Consequently, to this objective comes the principle of Statistical confidentiality which states that: no individual or even aggregated information can be disclosed if there is any risk for direct or indirect identification of the individual subject of the information.
