Collecting Sensitive Data Anonymously: Further Findings on the CDRGP Technique.
Carifio, James; Biron, Ronald
This report of research findings describes a confidentiality-preserving data collection method called the Context-Determined, Rule-Generated, Pseudonym (CDRGP) technique, a specifically constructed set of questions based upon personal information known to the respondent (but to few others) which each respondent answers whenever data are gathered; the respondent's answers to the questions generate a probabilistically unique string of letters, or code identifier, that allows the data being collected to be tied to previously collected data. The report describes CDRGP in full, explains the research methodology involved in three separate experiments, and details the findings. References are provided. (FM)
