Abstract: This report describes prototype software called 'Febrl' designed to undertake probabilistic data cleaning (or standardisation) and record linkage. Written in the Python programming language, this software aims to allow health, biomedical and other researchers to clean (standardise) and link data sets of all sizes faster, with less effort and with improved quality.
