Hi,

I'm using a dataset with a format of date of birth (dob) which I can't
recognize.


     +--------------+
     |    dob       age |
     |--------------|
  1. | 141116    27 |
  2. | 141016    27 |
  3. | 150189     2 |
  4. | 125494    70 |
  5. | 126759    66 |
     +--------------+
The survey was carried out between 1996 and 1997. So, the first
respondents who's date of
birth was "141116"  was 27 years old at that time, either 1996 or 1997.

Does anyone know what format of date are those?

Thanks!

H.
