Benford's Law Analysis

Benford's Law seems counterintuitive. It is a statistical tool which predicts the frequency of certain digits in real-world "random" numbers. For instance, if you were to pick out every number in tomorrow's newspaper, Benford's Law would be able to tell you what percentage of them will start with the digit '1', or the digit '2', and so on.

It's too complex to elaborate here, so I recommend reading this page for general information, and this page on how this applies to fraud detection.


Basically, you paste the text to analyse into the textbox, click Go, and the results are displayed in a graph.
