The purpose of this MAC paper is to present and discuss options for encoding Census name for use in record linkage, and seek MAC’s views on the preferred option. In particular, we seek advice on whether the preferred method will fulfil the dual aims of providing sufficient security of 2016 Census name information while ensuring that linked datasets are of sufficient quality to support informed policy decision making. We also seek advice on the manner in which the preferred method is implemented.
