Benford's law, also called the first-digit law, is an observation about the frequency distribution of leading digits in many real-life sets of numerical data.


The law states that in many naturally occurring collections of numbers, the leading significant digit is likely to be small.


The development team are currently working on a solution that investigators, auditors and those of a curious nature will be able to download that will analyse analyse data from various sources and produce the well known graphs. This solution will incorporate numerous options for First, Second, First two, digits and more.


The best news of all is that the solution will be free of charge, so check back often as release is not too far away. To compliment the solution a MOOC course will also be released that will cover the history and meaning of Benford's Law.
