In resonance analyses, experimental uncertainties affect the accuracy of resonance parameters. The resonance analysis code REFIT can consider the statistical uncertainty of the experimental data when evaluating the resonance parameter uncertainty. However, since the systematic uncertainties are not independent at each measured energy, they must be treated differently from the statistical uncertainty. In the present study, we developed a new method to incorporate the systematic uncertainty coming from sample thickness into the uncertainty of resonance parameters. We applied this method to transmission of natural zinc measured at ANNRI of MLF in J-PARC and derived the systematic uncertainty of resonance parameters. We found that some of resonance parameters have larger systematic uncertainties than the statistical ones.
