    There was an excellent study conducted by Curtin University in Australia, Center for Data Linkage, part of the Healthcare college at the university


    In it they compared the results of 10+ record linkage software vendors on record linkage accuracy for small, medium, and large (Millions) of records


    The top winners were

    Data Ladder's Datamatch Enterprise solution

    IBM's Infosphere

    and SAS


    Overall it was an excellent study and really showed how some better software can drastically improve record linkage in population studies

    We currently use Data Ladder's software
