Dedupe.io was shut down Jan 31, 2023.
The Dedupe.io team has decided to dedicate our focus to our consulting practice at DataMade and work on projects more aligned with our mission to support our clients in working toward democracy, justice, and equity.
We are continuing our consulting practice around the open source dedupe library and would be happy to consult with you on setting up a solution based on it. Contact us to get started >
To assess the record of the Minnesota POST Board, the Star Tribune matched names and dates of birth of licensed law enforcement officers against conviction data from state criminal court records. The POST Board provided names, dates of birth and licensing start and expiration dates for anyone who has held a peace officer’s license since Minnesota’s licensing system started in the late 1970s.
“Dedupe.io simplifies the process of trying to do a messy match of names and dates of birth between two datasets, which I’ve found to be one of the hardest data tasks. Dedupe found matches that I likely would’ve missed using any other tool, and gave me far greater confidence in my results.”
