Is it possible to identify respondents through their responses, locations, etc.?

There are two versions of the CPES data sets: a public-use version that is available to everyone and has no identifiable data and a restricted-use version that contains more sensitive information but still not any direct identifiers. Researchers must request the restricted-use version through the Applying for Restricted-Use Data process that includes signing an Agreement and providing a data protection plan.
