This R package provides tools to work with swedish identity numbers such as personal identity numbers (personnummer) and organizational identity numbers (organisationsnummer).

Installation

Install the stable release version in R:

install.packages("sweidnumbr")

Test the installation by loading the library:

library(sweidnumbr)

We also recommend setting the UTF-8 encoding:

Sys.setlocale(locale="UTF-8") 

Example: personal identity numbers

As a first step we need to convert personal identity numbers (pin) to the same standard format used by the Swedish tax authority.

example_pin <- c("640823-3234", "6408233234", "19640823-3230")
example_pin <- as.pin(example_pin)
example_pin
## [1] "196408233234" "196408233234" "196408233230"
## Personal identity number(s)

The next step is to test if the vector is a pin object. To do this we use the is.pin() function.

is.pin(example_pin)
## [1] TRUE

This only check the format of the pin. To check the pin using the control number we use pin_ctrl().

pin_ctrl(example_pin)
## [1]  TRUE  TRUE FALSE

We can now use pin_birthplace() and pin_sex(). To get information on sex and birthplace.

pin_sex(example_pin)
## [1] Male Male Male
## Levels: Male
pin_birthplace(example_pin)
## [1] Gotlands län Gotlands län Gotlands län
## 28 Levels: Stockholm stad Stockholms län Uppsala län ... Born after 31 december 1989

As the last step we can calculate the age based on the pin. We choose the date where we want to calculate the age. If date is not specified the current date is used.

pin_age(example_pin)
## [1] 52 52 52
pin_age(example_pin, date = "2000-01-01")
## [1] 35 35 35

It is also possible to format the pin for presentation in different forms. (Note however that the output of format_pin is just a character and no longer a pin object):

format_pin(example_pin, "%Y-%m-%d-%N")
## [1] "1964-08-23-3234" "1964-08-23-3234" "1964-08-23-3230"
format_pin(example_pin, "%P")
## [1] "(19) 64-08-23 - 3234" "(19) 64-08-23 - 3234" "(19) 64-08-23 - 3230"

Sometimes we want some example pins. We can easily simulate pins using rpin():

rpin(3)
## [1] "196406210746" "197104110287" "200204202713"
## Personal identity number(s)

Example: organizational identity numbers

Handling of organizational identity numbers is done in a similar fashion. But organizational numbers are only allowed to have one format.

example_oin <- c("556000-4615", "232100-0156", "802002-4280")
example_oin <- as.oin(example_oin)
example_oin
## [1] "556000-4615" "232100-0156" "802002-4280"
## Organizational identity number(s)

We can test if the vector has a correct format in a similar way as for pin.

is.oin(example_oin)
## [1] TRUE

With a vector of oin we can check if the organizational number is correct.

oin_ctrl(example_oin)
## [1] TRUE TRUE TRUE

We can also check the type of organization.

oin_group(example_oin)
## [1] Aktiebolag                             
## [2] Stat, landsting, kommuner, församlingar
## [3] Ideella föreningar och stiftelser      
## 3 Levels: Aktiebolag ... Stat, landsting, kommuner, församlingar

Sometimes we want some example oins. We can easily simulate oins using roin():

roin(3)
## [1] "619432-4924" "787779-6263" "978498-4305"
## Organizational identity number(s)
