Abstract
The issues of confidentiality and freedom of information are discussed for studies involving health surveillance around point sources of pollution. The problems discussed are related to protecting data after a study has been initiated. Research studies describing the impact of confidentiality on response rates are discussed. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's current and proposed procedures for handling and releasing these data are presented. These can be used by other agencies in defining their security procedures. Copyright (c) 1981 by Academic Press, Inc.
