The Newcomb-Benford Law (NBL) is mainly applied for the detection of false or erroneous data. There are studies that show that precipitation data conform to this law. In the present work we try to know if the monthly precipitation data in Ecuador fit or not to the distribution of the NBNL. We used 26025 monthly precipitation data from 411 INAMHI weather stations in Ecuador. With an α = 0.05, Chi-Square Goodness of Fit was 2 applied, obtaining a p = 1.000. Since the p-value is greater than the α value, the H 0 was accepted: Precipitation data fit the LNB distribution.
