What are the re-identification risk scores of publicly available anonymised clinical trial datasets?

We propose to randomly select several publicly available datasets from well known data repositories, and to calculate the re-identification risk scores using the methods described by El-Emam (2013). We will investigate what characteristics of the datasets are associated with increased or decreased risk scores, interpret all calculated risk scores and assess their usability, and discuss our findings. If issues arise with any particular dataset, they will be directly discussed with the datasets owners, and if appropriate, the issue will be reported as a result in this study, anonymised and unlinked to its original anonymised/de-identified dataset. There will not be any attempt to re-identify or contact individual patients.
