Researchers using various of statistical data want to obtain microdata for a detailed analysis. Institutes need to provide microdata after masking processes for sensitive data. Many researchers have used the proportion of unique identity for the measurement of disclosure risk. We proposed a new measurement of disclosure risk that considers the case that all identities are the same or similar. As an application example, we compare the newly proposed measurement and the existing measurement using 10667 data in `Korea Household Income and Expenditure Survey data for 2010`.
