I am assuming you are referring to this statement "...Mean autosomal divergence is 1.27 ± 0.20% (human-chimpanzee),...

Yes. That is what I was referring to. Keep in mind I didn't take biology in college, so I sort of get the gist of stuff like this but I don't presume to "know" what it says. A staggering amount has been learned since I had high school biology. My daughter when taking high school biology was studying stuff light years beyond what I had. I couldn't help her at all.

So the implication is chimps are less than 1.5% different from us (including error bars).
