Skip to comments.Benford's law for fraud detection
Posted on 11/05/2020 11:17:39 AM PST by Truthsearcher
I don't know how many of you have heard of Benford's test. It's basically a very easy and simple way to spot fake numbers.
It basically says in an random set of numbers in a base 10 system, the likelihood of each number appearing is
When numbers a totally out of synch with those numbers, you know you're not dealing with completely random numbers and dealing with fake made up numbers.
Now here is graph for the number of votes in each precinct for both Trump and Biden in each precinct in Detroit, Milwaukee and Philadelphia
Notice the top 3 Trump numbers are all in line with the Benford curve, whereas the Biden numbers are ridiculously out of line with Benford's law.
This is how even a cursory look at the data alert you to human made up numbers.
when fraud is not extinguished, it grows exponentially.
when allowed in politicians, countries and justice die.
Joe the Fraud-Man Biden
More fraud! Ugh ugh ugh!
“in an random set of numbers in a base 10 system”
Well, there’s the error in your logic. Vote counts are not random sets of numbers.
All naturally occurring numbers follow this law of distribution.
The original thread from 4chan is here, the usual warnings about the coarse language, etc. apply.
Note that the Trump results seem to follow the expected distribution, but the Biden results do not. That is quite unusual, and in most forensic accounting investigations would lead to suspicion.
Learn about Beford's law.
I’m very familiar with Benford’s law. What is the x-axis? I can’t tell from the picture - the resolution isn’t strong.
Here are the graphs:
I trust our friends are looking into this
The X axis is the first digit of the result from a precinct, or ward depending on the location, the Y axis is frequency.
I wish there was a chart or timeline like this of GA. I know Trump was up by 300,000 election night, then they counted in secret and he was down to 100,000 by morning. Now he leads by only 12,825
When people fake data they put in digits that they think are random, but really aren't. So the pattern of digits is used in fraud investigations of all kinds.
It would pretty much look like Milwaukee for Biden with one or two tall bars on the left.
I've never heard of "Benford's Law" but I can see how it could come about. I would imagine that it applies only to complete numbers. If you examine a large enough list of random numbers drawn from the range from, let's say, 0 to 999,999 then I would expect that the least significant digit would be distributed evenly; that is, there would be the same amount of each of the ten digits.
I believe that somebody reported that one state had too many precincts reporting totals that ended in "00". That would be very hard to explain unless humans were involved in picking the numbers.
