Better or unclear

Precision is the ratio of true positives to positives: how many hits are correct? Yield is the ratio of true positives to the total number of true positives and false negatives: how many hits that should have been found were actually found. This two-dimensional perspective does not allow for any clear-cut estimation.


If name matching Method A results in lower yield and precision values than Method B, then A is a poorer method than B. If, however, Method C results in higher yield values but lower precision values than B, what matters is whether yield or precision is more important. In this case, C is different when compared to B, but not fundamentally better or worse.


Complete Revision of the Federal Data Protection Act

Complete Revision of the Federal Data Protection Act: „As of 15th September 2017, draft and report for a completely revised Federal Data Protection Act is public. In a first step parliament and the people agreed to adaptations in order to be compliant with EU law. The second part of the revision is debated by the parliament since September 2019.
