Hi! I am in a group with three other graduate assistants and we are working on a project with participant data. We have to deidentify this data so that we can use it off site since it can be linked to information on children. We have figured out how to add random IDs for this data so that we can deidentify it using the openssl package.
We are looking at data over different quarters, and students can repeat. We figured out how to add newer data and creating the random ID variable. Is there a way that we can populate random IDs for new participants while repeat participants keep the same IDs over time?
