 +We will always assess the re-identification risk to NSHD study members as part of project consideration. Such risks put a limit on the potential maximum size of dataset that can be supplied. Please be sure to only select the core variables needed for your project. ​
 +
 +Large baskets with many hundreds, or thousands, of variables are by their nature more potentially disclosive, and less likely to be acceptable. Baskets containing more than 500 variables may need advanced risk assessment, for which the Director reserves the right to charge a fee. 
 +
 +Applicants are **strongly advised** to minimise their basket size for these reasons.
 +
 +\\ 
 +Due to workflow issues, if a single project results in multiple data basket requests, there will likely be a delay between the delivery of successive baskets. Depending on the volume of other access requests being processed, this delay may be considerable.
