COMMENTS

It appears that a good estimate for the standard deviation of primes below 10^(n+1) is about 10 times the term for 10^n.

Heuristically, if we use a model where each positive integer x has probability approximately 1/log(x) of being prime, we should expect the standard deviation of the primes below N to be approximately N/sqrt(12). - Robert Israel, Sep 23 2014

EXAMPLE

a(6) = 292821 (rounded from 292820.634) because this is the computed and rounded sample standard deviation of the 78498 primes below 10^6.
