This federal data, once merged w/ the census data, would be a very powerful tool that could be weaponized, like in 2016
Dept of Education
The big questions are;
What data is "legally accessible"?
Will the federal agencies cooperate?
"a record" = data about a person, which includes one or more key field(s) that uniquely identifies that person
But I highly doubt this will be the case. Merging data from so many different systems is likely to be a data nightmare, resulting in inaccurate data, similar to Credit Bureau data
Alone this prospect is scary, but consider the other data out there...
This data was their secret weapon in 2016.
These days, data is power, and we need #Resist any attempt to gather federal data to be used for political purposes.
