Data Integration

The critical methodology for creating integrated data systems is the process of record linkage, which refers to the joining or merging of data on the basis of common data fields. The data fields are usually personal identifiers (e.g., name, birth date, social security number), or an encrypted version of those identifiers. Other examples of data fields within IDSs are system-generated client tracking numbers, encrypted “unique IDs,” or addresses.
