Language from Contract:
VII. J. Research outputs intended for release or publication must not include or reveal the characteristics of an individual respondent.
VII. K. Research outputs intended for release or publication must not include presentation of data or observations by geographic area at the State level or finer. This restriction does not prohibit presentation of data or observations aggregated on a bi-state or multi-state level.
VII. L. The Recipient Project Coordinator must submit for confidentiality review any research output intended for release or publication that could raise reasonable questions regarding any compromise or breach of confidentiality or any disclosure of individually identifiable information. Where such reasonable questions exist, such outputs may not be released or published without the advance written approval of the BLS Project Coordinator. The recipient and designated agents will be bound by the determinations of the BLS Project Coordinator.
VII.M For this NLSY Geocode LOA, in addition to any required submission under VII. L, the BLS Project Coordinator may require the submission for BLS review of any research output from the project intended for release or publication. The scope of this review will be solely to determine compliance with CIPSEA and the Privacy Act, and to ensure adherence to the confidentiality and security provisions established under Sections VII and VIII of this agreement. BLS will notify the Recipient Project Coordinator within three months of the execution of this agreement if research outputs will need to be submitted for review. However, BLS reserves the right to require submission of research outputs at any time if BLS, in its sole discretion, believes a violation of this agreement may have occurred. BLS will complete its review of outputs and notify the Recipient Project Coordinator as soon as possible, not to exceed sixty (60) days after receipt. Agents may not disseminate research outputs until BLS has completed its review and a written authorization has been provided to the Recipient Project Coordinator. The recipient and designated agents will be bound by the determinations of the BLS Project Coordinator.
