Abstract: We consider statistical tools for the detection of frauds in customs data collected in international trade, by developing a principled framework for goodness- of-fit testing of Benfordís law. Our approach relies on a trader-specific contamination model, under which fraud detection has close connections with outlier testing. We also compare the performance of this approach with alternative tools based on robust statistics that rely on a different transaction-specific contamination model.
