Abstract for JLAB Technical Note 02-015  

The systematic uncertainties for the cross section measurements performed during Hall A experiment E89-003 were investigated. These uncertainties were classified into two catergories: scale and kinematic-dependent. Scale systematic uncertainties were extracted from the archives. They were determined to dominate. An exhaustive series of simulations was performed to quantify the kinematic-dependent effects. They were determined to be small. The average systematic uncertainty associated with a 1p-shell cross section is estimated to be 5.6%, while that associated with a continuum cross section is estimated to be 5.9%. These results are comparable with those obtained in similar analyses. A complete overview of the investigation is presented.
