This paper presents the evaluation of safe bearing capacity by using statistical analysis. Bearing capacity formulae are proposed by various researchers for various conditions. In this study, four researchers namely, Terzaghi, Meyerhof, Hansen and Vesic are selected to use the bearing capacity equations. The required soil data are taken from thirteen soil reports in Chan Aye Thar San Township which includes thirty numbers of boreholes. The bearing capacity of the soil is calculated at the depth of 6ft below ground level and the square footing is considered in this study. The safety factor of 3 is used to obtain the allowable bearing capacity for various equations. To get confidence interval by statistical analysis, the allowable bearing capacity values are divided into three portions. These are the bearing capacity values less than 2 ksf, the bearing capacity values between 2 ksf and 3 ksf, and the bearing capacity values greater than 3 ksf. Confidence interval is taken as 98 . The summary of safe bearing capacity values for different locations is described.
