First Impression from Presidential Election Turnout Results implies Manipulation

Here’s the big piece I was alluding to in my last post:

First glance impression from data on Armenia’s recent Presidential Election: Manipulation?

As part of my work at CRRC, I conducted a statistical analysis of the precinct turnouts. I looked at the last digit of each of the turnouts to see if the last digit is random, as it should be. My results found that it’s statistically improbable for the digits to be random. This implies the data has been manipulated. It doesn’t say how or why the data was manipulated, whether for nefarious or innocent purposes, or whether it was purposeful or accidental, but the data is likely to be manipulated.Graph on possible manipulation
