Poisson errors??

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.

Re: Poisson errors??

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?
