National identification number: Finland part 3
(This article was first published on XRGB
, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)
Last part of our short series about the Finnish social security number (Fssn). You can check part 1 here, and part 2 here.
This last post we are interested in generating random Fssn’s. This has no real world applications. It is just a coding excercise for the willing. If you are up for the challenge try doing it yourself.
I’m not going to go indepth about this algorithm, I’ll just present it
