This paper is a sequel to two previous papers on the subject of the Folded Normal Distribution appearing in Technometrics, 3, pp. 543-550 and 551-562, (1961). In these earlier papers methods for estimating the parameters of the Folded Normal Distribution were proposed. This paper gives approximations for the standard errors for the maximum liklihood estimates of these parameters.
