A Primer on Private Statistics

Gautam Kamath, Jonathan Ullman

Differentially private statistical estimation has seen a flurry of developments over the last several years. Study has been divided into two schools of thought, focusing on empirical statistics versus population statistics. We suggest that these two lines of work are more similar than different by giving examples of methods that were initially framed for empirical statistics, but can be applied just as well to population statistics. We also provide a thorough coverage of recent work in this area.
