This paper gives some suggestions and caveats on how to estimate the confidence limits on data obtained from atom-probe experiments. There are four sections covering autocorrelation, the use of contingency tables, estimation of ordering parameters and testing for clustering. This paper certainly does not exhaust the possibilities for statistical tests which may be applied to atom probe data, but demonstrates some useful techniques, which as far as the authors are aware have not been used before.
