The sample variation of indices for approximation of sets in the context of rough sets data analysis is considered. We consider the γ and α indices and some other ones – lower and upper bound approximation of decision classes. We derive confidence bounds for these indices as well as a two group comparison procedure. Finally we present procedures to compare the approximation quality of two sets within one sample.
