It is faster to use RDB$DB_KEY to find and delete duplicates.
See more details here
I had finally figured it out just before your reply
SELECT DISTINCT P.SOC_SEC_NO,
FROM PERSON P2
WHERE P2.SOC_SEC_NO = P.SOC_SEC_NO) AS CNT
FROM PERSON P
WHERE P.SOC_SEC_NO IS NOT NULL
GROUP BY 1
HAVING (SELECT COUNT(*)
FROM PERSON P3
WHERE P3.SOC_SEC_NO = P.SOC_SEC_NO) > 1
This appears to work. See anything that I should change?

RTFM GROUP BY, HAVING, COUNT().
