BENFORD'S LAW is a mathematical law that applies to any population of numbers derived from other numbers (such as the dollar amount of a sale, found by multiplying the quantity sold times the unit price). It holds that 30% of the time the first non-zero digit of this derived number will be one, and it will be a nine only 4.6% of the time. Benford's law is used by auditors to identify fictitious populations of numbers.

MARKETABLE CAPACITY is an assessment of total capacity compared to that capacity that sales projections indicate that the market can absorb. Dependent upon demand, the analysis will indicate whether the marketable capacity is at capacity, over capacity (inflationary), or under capacity (deflationary).
