dc.descriptionThe main purpose of the US Census Bureau's Synthetic LBD is to facilitate researcher access to establishment microdata in a way that preserves the confidentiality of the underlying entities' data. Establishment and firm microdata pose many challenges in this dimension, as they are sparse and often unique. It is easy to think of firms or establishments that are dominant in a specific industry or geographic location to such degree that their identification would be trivial if their data were released. This is true for many countries. Consequently, it is not uncommon that access to establishment microdata, if granted at all, is provided through data enclaves (Research Data Centers), at headquarters, or some other limited access. These restrictions on data access reduce the research output by increasing the cost to researchers of accessing the data.en_US
