ifctools-package: Italian fiscal code miscellaneous utilities

Description Details Author(s) See Also Examples


Italian fiscal code constitutes a typical id for statistical units among different italian datasets. It's a 16 char unique value assigned by the tax office (the italian "Agenzia delle Entrate"), given individual infos like name, surname, date and place of birth.

From the data analyst standpoint, many times one need to merge different data sources on the basis of a fiscal code vector; not always these information are reliable (e.g. imputation error). This can cause the units not to match.

This package provides utility fuctions to deal with italian fiscal codes . The most important ones are fc.check and data2fc: they can be used to determine if fiscal codes are wrong and, if so, to "guess" the right ones (provided you've the necessary data).
