Hi, I am working on a project whereby I need to include some Poisson errors on my data. I think they are "Poisson" due to the fact that the scales used are log scales. I was just wondering if anyone had a formula I can apply or any useful info so I might work these errors out. Thanks people Your help is most appreciated as I am slowly getting more desperate/panicky.

I have found something that says the Poisson errors are simply sqrt(N). Is it really that simple as other sites seem to have incredibly complex derivations?

Perhaps you could include a little more information on your project?
