“Benford's law, also called the first-digit law, states that in lists of numbers from many real-life sources of data, the leading digit is 1 almost one-third of the time, and larger numbers occur as the leading digit with less and less frequency as they grow in magnitude, to the point that 9 is...

WHEN TO USE BENFORD'S LAW TO SPOT FRAUD. Briefly explained, Benford's Law maintains that the numeral 1 will be the leading digit in a genuine data set of numbers 30.1% of the time; the numeral 2 will be the leading digit 17.6% of the time; and each subsequent numeral, 3 through 9, will be the leading digit with decreasing frequency.

To apply Benford’s Law, therefore, an accountant must count the number of times a 1 appears as the lead digit in the data values, the number of times a 2 appears, etc., and then examine the resulting frequency distribution. The distribution is “natural” if it follows Benford’s distribution, and suspect otherwise.
