COMMENTS
These numbers are not always prime with 35 occurring for prime(n) n<1000000.
The first 35 occurs at a(947). - Antti Karttunen, Dec 16 2017

FORMULA
a(n) = A013632(A006562(n))-1. - Antti Karttunen, Dec 16 2017
EXAMPLE
53 has the 5 consecutive composites 48,49,50,51,52 below it and the 5 consecutive composites 54,55,56,57,58 above it so 5 is in the second position in the table.
