Uncertainty propagation to the γ-γ coincidence-summing correction factor from the covariances of the nuclear data and detection efficiencies have been formulated. The method was applied in the uncertainty analysis of the coincidence-summing correction factors in the γ-ray spectrometry of the 134Cs point source using a p-type coaxial HPGe detector.
