    Recently I found out that our SSNs are coded to convey certain information.

    The first three numbers specifies the geographical location. The next two numbers is the group number. The last four is the serial number.

    It was a white guy who told me about this. When I asked him what was meant by "group Number" he said it doesn't mean anything. The way he said it made me think it did mean something.

    Does anybody here know what it means?

    I have found some information to validate this.

    I have heard rumors that supposedly black folks SSN's all begin with even numbers, always contain the number 2, and several other conspiracy theories that never held up (I would always find a black person with an SSN that broke the alleged rule). It is interesting that zip codes are used, as some areas are more dominated by certain groups.

    This must be an urban legend. The first of my SSN is an odd number, and contains no 2's. I believe the prefix of it has something to do with which state you were born in. If it is a racial identity code, so much for them tracking me down, because my Birth Certificate has no race marked:x: Funny, the year prior(77), my sister was marked "Negro".

    While I can not verify exactly how the numbers are decided upon I do know for example that certain employers do have an ETHNIC code for their employers and it is possible that the SSN system uses a similar method...however, this system can not be uniform because of the increasing number of "biracials" unless they have a special code for "others" which is highly possible...

    Since I used to be a union site representative i was able to obtain access to senoority lists and other personnel information at ths school which I used to work which revelaed this method of classification of workers according to ethnicity..
