IntegerLength will do

dat = RandomInteger[2^100, 1000000];
Sort[Tally[Map[IntegerLength, dat]], #1[[1]] > #2[[1]] &] // Timing

alpha character.

after poking around in documentation for the past 4 hours have yet to
find the parallel function in Mathematica for counting the integer
frequency length in a big data set. My family wants me to drop
everything and put the Turkey in the oven. My cat Sylvester even fell
asleep on his back in front of the refrigerator with his little legs up
in the air, so he want miss the transfer of the Turkey from the stove to
the refrigerator. OH WELL -- IT'S SHOW TIME!
