A central limit theorem for intrinsic means on a complete flat manifold and some asymptotic properties of the intrinsic total sample variance on an arbitrary complete manifold are given. A studentized pivotal statistic and its bootstrap analogue which yield confidence regions for the intrinsic mean on a complete flat manifold are also derived.
