Abstract. We use the Stein-Chen method to determine a bound on the relative error between the Poisson binomial distribution function with parameter and the Poisson distribution function with mean . With this bound, the Poisson distribution function with this mean can be used as an estimate of the Poisson binomial distribution function whenever all are small.
