Confidential Information Protection and Statistical Efficiency Act

Confidential Information Protection and Statistical Efficiency Act

The Confidential Information Protection and Statistical Efficiency Act, ("CIPSEA"), is a United States federal law enacted in 2002 as Title V of the E-Government Act of 2002 (Pub.L. 107-347, 116 Stat. 2899, 44 U.S.C. § 101).

CIPSEA establishes uniform confidentiality protections for information collected for statistical purposes by US statistical agencies, and it allows some data sharing between the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Bureau of Economic Analysis, and Census Bureau.[1] The agencies report to OMB on particular actions related to confidentiality and data sharing.[2][3][4]

Roughly speaking, the law guides standardized approaches to the idea that a respondent's information should not be exposed in ways that lead to inappropriate or surprising identification of the respondent. By default the respondent's data is used for statistical purposes only. If the respondent gives informed consent, the data can be put to some other use.
