Will the collected data be disclosed?

Article 45 of the Enforcement Rules of the Statistics Act prescribes that the statistical personnel of government agencies conducting the surveys shall keep all microdata obtained from various surveys in confidential. Except statistical analysis in its entirety, the microdata cannot be used for any other purposes. If any statistical personnel disclosed a respondent's microdata resulting in injuries to the rights and interests of the respondent, he/she may be disciplined according to the seriousness of the injuries. He/she shall also be held accountable under the law for any criminal liability incurred from disclosing confidential microdata of the respondent. Therefore, the public has no need to worry that their personal information will be disclosed.
