  • Detecting fraud with Benford's law

    Many datasets, particularly those which span several orders of magnitude, have a special property. About 30% of the initial digits of all the data items will be the digit '1'. This can be used to detect fraud, for instance in expenses claims, as people tend to concoct figures which don't have this property. These functions implement one possible test for matching Benford's law. (Credits in the comments.)
