Abstract : When computing elliptic error probable (EEP) ellipse axes for location error with a given confidence level, the chi square statistics tables are used if the standard deviation is known. If the standard deviation is estimated from the data, then the Fstatistics tables are used. This memo examined the error caused by use of the chi square statistics tables in place of the Fstatistics tables. This error is quantified in terms of the number of LOBs used to obtain the location estimate. Keywords: Variance; Covariance; Sample size; Confidence level.
