By signing the Agreement Regarding Conditions of Access to Confidential Data in the Michigan Center on the Demography of Aging Data Enclave enclave users agree that any data file provided to them "...will be used only for statistical reporting and analysis and will not be published or released in identifiable form." In this context, the term "statistical summary information" means the result(s) of statistical analysis in any of the following forms: record listings, frequency tabulations, magnitude tabulations, means, variances, regression coefficients, correlation coefficients, graphical displays and any other result of an analytic process.
To help ensure a low probability of accidental individual identification, under item 5 of the agreement, researchers promise "not to remove any printouts, electronic files, documents or media from the Data Enclave premises until they have been scanned for disclosure risk by authorized MiCDA Data Enclave staff." The exact nature of the disclosure risk scan process will depend on the type(s) of analysis produced by the Data Enclave user.
Please read MiCDA Enclave Rules for Pre-Export Disclosure Review before you proceed with your application. You should contact a member of the MiCDA Data Enclave technical staff if you have any questions concerning the review process.
