For the most part, the government has assigned numbers starting in New England and moving to the south and west from there. People on the eastern seaboard typically have the lowest numbers, while those in California have the highest. The Area Number refers to a geographical region of the United States, usually a state or territory. Prior to 1972, the government issued social security cards from local offices around the country, with the Area Number specifying the state where the card and number were issued. This wasn't necessarily the state where the individual resided, since one can apply for a card in any office. After 1972, when the government began assigning SSNs and cards centrally from an office in Maryland, this number has been based on the zip code from the mailing address provided by the applicant. Of course, a person's mailing address isn't necessarily the same as their place of residence. So, the Area Number does not always represent the applicant's state of residence.

My number is skipped on there. It is not that it gives an incorrect State. It is just not there.
A: I am not real
B: That site is flawed
You should probably check a more credible source.

I mentioned in the OP that the entire Obama SS# issue was the basis for this thread, and so far I think the responses show one very key thing.......as a previous post stated, SS#'s do not 100% prove where you where born.
So that is my agenda, to prove this issue is pretty much silly. Some people will use interesting, yet trivial information to try and drum-up a conspiracy against those they disagree with. Keep in mind that I am a conserative, and wish Obama was history, but the SS#/birther issue has become a 3-ring circus, and its more humorous than anythign else.
Thanks for playing along!

I believe the hoopla regarding Obama's SSN is about the fact it was from a state he has never lived in and was previously given to another individual.
