Short summary
Contrary to the claims put forward in Evaluation of measurement data – Guide to the expression of uncertainty in measurement issued by the JCGM, the error concept and the uncertainty concept are the same. Arguments in favor of the contrary were found not to be compelling. Neither was any evidence presented that errors and uncertainties define a different relation between the measured and true values, nor is a Bayesian concept beyond the mere subjective probability referred to.
