  4. You are the identity manager… MARIA D WILSON HS CASTILLO-DELGADO DOB: 11/05/1995 MARIA C WILSON HS CASTILLO-DELG DOB: 9/24/1994

  5. Identity Resolution Problems (K12) • There are ~55,000 unique first names among students in Arkansas and ~40,000 last names. • Approximately 20% of Arkansas students share both the same first and last name with another student.

  6. Identity Resolution (K12) • There are 4,026 students in Arkansas that share an SSN with at least one other student in the state. • Between August and January, 874 student transfers to other schools resulted in an SSN change. • Between August and January, an additional 1,018 students changed their SSN—we have records for only 300 of these changes. • There are ~17,000 students in Arkansas with a “900” SSN

  7. Identity Resolution (Workforce) • ~55,000,000 records for 10 years, 2,938,718 unique SSNs, no DOBs, inconsistent naming standards. • 7,865 SSNs used by two or more people, for a total of 18,278 different individuals. Those would be combined incomes and treated as the same person if SSN was the primary key. • The same person has two or more SSNs (because of a typo/transposition) 13,373 times. There would be 13,373 additional (non-existent) people with separate incomes if SSN was the primary key.

  8. Problem Statement There are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say, we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns – the ones we don’t know we don’t know. D. Rumsfeld 2/12/2002

  9. Record Linking File A File B Your knowledge is limited to what’s in these two files ONLY

  10. Knowledge Base Approach All known representations are stored to facilitate matching in the future and possibly resolve past matching errors. Bob Smith, Conway High School Robert Smith, Acxiom Knowledge Base Bob Smith, UCA

  11. Possible Matching Errors False Positives (over-consolidation) False Negatives (under-consolidation)

  12. Identity Management Over-consolidation – split the records apart and update all affected systems Under-consolidation – bring the records together and update all affected systems

  13. Knowledge Base Steps Do all 5 values match exactly (E5)? No. Do 4 values match (E4)? No. Do 3 values match (E3)? No/*. Do 2 values match (E2)? Yes. Are they enough for confidence? No. CONCLUSION: NO MATCH THEY ARE KEPT SEPARATE IN KNOWLEDGE BASE MARIA D WILSON HS CASTILLO-DELGADO DOB: 11/05/1995 * Last name is a special case MARIA C WILSON HS CASTILLO-DELG DOB: 9/24/1994

  14. Exact v. Fuzzy(Deterministic v. Probabilistic) Exact matching drives the majority of identity resolution (Pareto Rule—80% is easy) Probabilistic algorithms – Soundex, QTR, Edit Distance, Neural Networks (Pareto Rule—20% require 80% of effort) You want a system that does what YOU, a human, would do

  15. Actual Results 100,000+ records from Explore and Plan exams, 2008 and 2009. Match rate, 99%.

  16. Examples: 1% Not Matched 100% is not realistic – 99% is realistic, but what’s important is the ability to manage problems as they arise

  17. Oyster Development 1st Generation – built in Access, automation of queries/functions creating Knowledge Base. (started in 2009) – shared with W. Virginia Data was longitudinal, but sourced from K-12 exclusively 2009 IES Grant included funding for research with UALR – this work became “Oyster” Oyster also funded with 2009 ARRA Grant

  18. What is Oyster? Open-System Entity Resolution Not database-driven, pure XML Java source code (unicode support) Matching by either Fellegi-Sunter or R-Swoosh methodologies

  19. Timeline visual Oyster (Java/XML) 1stGenIDs (Access) 1.1 1.2 1.3 1.4 1.5 2.0 2009 1.x 2.x 3.0 3.1 3.2 2010 2011 K.I.M. (SQL/PHP) GUI 2.0 soon

  20. What’s Next? Oyster – the memory leak has been fixed and there is now a GUI K.I.M. (Knowledge-base Identity Management) – replicates what we currently have in Access, eliminating the size limitations, but does not have a GUI at this time Oyster will be adding “assertions” KIM will add full audit capability Both deal with over- and under-consolidations

  21. Oyster XML Run Script

  22. Oyster Input GUI

  24. TrustEd: Identity Information Knowledge Base TrustEd Identity Resolution & Management De-identified Research Databases

  25. Trusted Broker A trusted broker maintains a cross reference table, encoding the identifiers for various agencies and for various representations of the entities. Agency 1 Agency 2

  26. TrustEd Results TrustEd validates the request based on sharing rules and translates the requesting agency’s local IDs to that of the other agency. The results are then returned to the requesting agency without the use of personally identifiable information. ADHE DWS What are the salaries for these individuals?

  27. Examples of Multi-agency Research • UAMS nICU – 1998 births to 2011 K12 assessments • Pre-K programs to K12 preparedness/assessments • K12 indicators for Higher Ed on-time graduation • Employment outcomes – Higher Ed to Workforce • Special Ed outcomes – K12, Higher Ed, Workforce, and Dept. of Corrections

  28. Questions? Oyster information – UALR http://www.ualr.edu/eriq Neal.Gibson@arkansas.gov Greg.Holland@arkansas.gov

  30. TrustEd: Identity Information Knowledge Base TrustEd Identity Resolution Identity Management

  31. Dual Database: Regulatory Compliance and Privacy Identity Information: Local Agency ID Generated Information of Interest: Stored With Local Agency ID Only Knowledge Base: Identity Resolution Edge Servers: Shareable Data

  32. Regulations: FERPA/HIPPA Both are similar in that they require permission before private information can be disclosed, but both also allow for research without disclosure if the data is “de-identified.”
