dominance rule


  A cell is regarded as confidential, if the n largest units contribute more than k % to the cell total, e.g., n=2 and k=85 means that a cell is defined as risky if the two largest units contribute more than 85 % to the cell total. The n and k are given by the statistical authority. In some NSOs [national statistical office] the values of n and k are confidential.
