Differential Privacy resources

Differential privacy is a definition that the Census Bureau is using to develop disclosure avoidance techniques to protect the privacy of census respondents in the 2020 Decennial Census. Our differential privacy database includes resources to learn more about differential privacy for those with a basic, intermediate, or advanced understanding of differential privacy.
