Youth Justice Board anonymised data in UK


Seems that the Youth Justice Board has built a new system (Youth Justice Board Information System, YJBIS) that generates statistical information based on so called anonymous data in the UK. We get back to that old discussion, of “how anonymous is anonymous”? Not very if you strip identifying information but in certain circumstances the data does not lose it’s anonymity. Take a look at what has been posted on ARCH blog for example concerning the YJBIS.
