Using two telescopes of beam-beam counters, CDF (Collider Detector at Fermilab) has measured the luminosity to an accuracy of 4.1% (3.6%) in run Ib (Ia). For run Ib (Ia) the average luminosity was 9.1(3.3)×1030 cm-2 s-1. For a typical data set the integrated luminosity was 86.47 (19.65) pb-1 in run Ib (Ia) resulting in a total integrated luminosity of 106.1±4.1 pb-1. This paper shows how we have determined the accuracy of our results.
