Abstract: Narkiewicz (reference [3, pp. 204-205]) has proposed an algorithm for determining the moduli with respect to which a given arithmetic function (of suitable type) has weak uniform distribution. The class of functions to which this algorithm applies includes the divisor functions . The present paper gives an improvement to the algorithm for odd values of *i*, which makes computation feasible for values of *i* up to 200. The results of calculations for odd values of *i* in the range are reported.
