Benfordness of the Generalized Gamma Distribution
Keywords: Benford's law; Benford distribution; generalized gamma distribution; digit bias; Poisson summation
The generalized gamma distribution shows up in many problems related to engineering, hydrology as well as survival analysis. Earlier work has been done that estimated the deviation of the exponential and the Weibull distribution from Benford's Law. We give a mathematical explanation for the Benfordness of the generalized gamma distribution and present a measure for the deviation of the generalized gamma distribution from the Benford distribution.
