Description:

This course will provide a basic introduction to record linkage, meaning it will address methods to combine data on given entities (people, households, firms etc.) that are stored in different data sources. The course will cover the various benefits of record linkage and the record linkage process, including preprocessing steps, techniques used in the matching step, and linkage evaluation. Participants will also learn about potential challenges that record linkage projects may face, including privacy issues (e.g. non-consent).

 

By the end of the session, participants will:

  • be familiar with the basic terminology of record linkage and the linkage process
  • know how to improve the quality of linkage identifiers by applying pre-processing routines
  • be familiar with different methods of increasing the efficiency of record linkage
  • be able to understand, select and apply appropriate record linkage methods (e.g., deterministic and probabilistic linkage)
  • be able to evaluate the success of data linkage
