Guide to De-Identifying Data

Researchers who plan to publish data on human subjects should take careful steps to protect the confidentiality of study participants through data de-identification—a process that reduces the risk of re-identifying individuals within a given dataset. This guide provides further details on the de-identification process, including various procedures for de-identifying a dataset, a list of common identifiers that need to be reviewed, and sample code that can be used to de-identify data intended for publication. It is intended to be used alongside the accompanying Guide to Publishing Research Data.

Guide to Publishing Research Data

J-PAL promotes the publication of de-identified data from randomized evaluations. This resource provides guidance on doing so in the form of a checklist for preparing data for submission. It also includes sample informed consent language and other considerations during project planning and before publication, and provides a description of trusted digital repositories that can host data. This guide is intended to be read alongside the accompanying Guide to De-Identifying Data.
