Administrative Records and Record Linkage
Administrative records research is gaining more prominence in survey statistics given the current trend of decreasing response rates. The Census Bureau is increasing the role of Administrative Records in the decennial Census and its annual surveys such as the American Community Survey. Datafugue is involved in this effort, helping to develop the Administrative Records Linkage software. Datafugue developed the deduplication algorithms used at Census to perform fast, efficient clustering of several sources of huge Administrative Records databases.
