[sjbzlgqd] Density of primes between N and 2N

Examine the density of primes between n and 2n for various values of n.  What regions have anomalously high density?  Low?

The Prime Number Theorem can provide the expected number of primes in a given region, but we also want variance to calculate significance of deviation from expectation.  This is probably not too difficult, since it's two class (binomial): prime or composite.
