These will facilitate novel studies to, for example, investigate how education, health, mobility, and employment have influenced the lives of people over several generations. In this talk I will present our recently developed novel temporal clustering approach which is aimed at linking records for a group of individuals, such as all births by the same mother, and where temporal constraints need to be enforced, such as intervals between births. We then present a novel cluster quality evaluation measure that categorizes each individual record according to the quality of the cluster the record has been linked into. Experiments on a real Scottish data set show the superiority of our novel temporal clustering approach over a previous approach for group record linkage, while also highlighting the need for novel quality evaluation measures for group record linkage. This work was conducted with Ms Charini Nanayakkara and Dr Thilina Ranbaduge.
