cellKey: Consistent Perturbation of Statistical Frequency- And Magnitude Tables

Data from statistical agencies and other institutions often need to be protected before they can be published. This package can be used to perturb statistical tables in a consistent way. The main idea is to add - at the micro data level - a record key for each unit. Based on these keys, for any cell in a statistical table a cell key is computed as a function on the record keys contributing to a specific cell. Values that are added to the cell in order to perturb it are derived from a lookup-table that maps values of cell keys to specific perturbation values. The theoretical basis for the methods implemented can be found in Thompson, Broadfoot and Elazar (2013) <https://unece.org/fileadmin/DAM/stats/documents/ece/ces/ge.46/2013/Topic_1_ABS.pdf> which was extended and enhanced by Giessing and Tent (2019) <https://unece.org/fileadmin/DAM/stats/documents/ece/ces/ge.46/2019/mtg1/SDC2019_S2_Germany_Giessing_Tent_AD.pdf>.
