Will Personally Identifiable Information be Made Public in P20 WIN Reports or Findings?

Read time: 6 minutes

No. Any findings or reports generated from data linked through P20 WIN will never reveal any information about the experiences or outcomes of an individual. Before any data are made public from a data request, the P20 WIN Data Governing Board members whose data are included review and verify that the data are aggregated sufficiently so that individuals cannot be determined from the data set.

Data are modified by rounding, use of ranges, aggregation of groups and/or elimination of small cell sizes for maximum security as recommended by the U.S. Department of Education in their Technical Brief: Statistical Methods for Protecting Personally Identifiable Information in Aggregate Reporting
