This work establishes the nonuniform Berry-Esseen inequality for coordinate symmetric vectors. The nonuniform Lp (p ≥ 1) bound is also established. The main results are applied to projections of random vectors distributed according to a family of measures on the \({\ell _{r}^{n}}\) sphere and the \({\ell _{r}^{n}}\) ball, including cone measure and volume measure.
