Data Validation

When values are validated against the Social Security Number data type, the  Dataprep by Trifacta application  validates the values using regular expressions. This regular expression method checks for general Social Security Number patterns and is fast to evaluate.

However, some values may follow the regular expression validation pattern but are not accurate social security numbers. These values may be detected as valid values.
