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 F-statistics tables are used. This memo examined the error caused by use of the chi square statistics tables in place of the F-statistics 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.
