Statistical database protection is a part of information security which tries to prevent published statistical information (tables, individual records) from disclosing the contribution of specific respondents. This paper shows how to use information-theoretic concepts to measure disclosure risk for tabular data. The proposed disclosure risk measure is compatible with a broad class of disclosure protection methods and can be extended for computing disclosure risk for a set of linked tables.
