One-to-one relationship

All traditionally anonymized data sets retain a 1:1 link between each anonymized record and one real entity. That's also why traditional anonymized datasets have the same dataset size as the original dataset. Synthetic data does not suffer from this limitation because it contains artificially generated information without any connection to real persons. These 1:1 links lead to the risk of re-identification.
