Data disclosure control policy and procedure

Data disclosure controls are applied to aggregated data to prevent the possibility of revealing information about individuals. We use a data disclosure control methodology based on the HESA Services standard rounding methodology.

All staff, consultants employed by us on projects involving individualised data and recipients of individualised data from HEFCW through data sharing agreements are responsible for ensuring that the data disclosure control methodology has been applied appropriately to aggregate data relating to individuals in any data that they share externally.
