Table 2 Two-sided 95% confidence limits for mean positional error magnitude, and 95% tolerance bound for the lower 95% of positional error magnitudes, at the 10th, 50th, and 90th percentiles of the statistically most important covariate (street length for municipal addresses and street intersection density for rural addresses).

From: The effects of local street network characteristics on the positional accuracy of automated geocoding for geographic health studies
