Jet measurements play an essential role in PDF fits and the available measurements will be briefly summarized. The primary experimental uncertainties in these measurements are the knowledge of the jet energy scale and resolution. The analyses used to evaluate these uncertainties will be described and how they are combined to form the set of uncertainties that dominate these measurements. How these uncertainties should be correlated between ATLAS measurements and those of other experiments in PDF fits will be discussed. Estimated projections towards higher luminosity will also be briefly discussed.
