@Mico Another thing: Isn't the default value of tabcolsep "6pt"?

comment table rescaling and subcaption package
@Mico Thanks for all your help, I've accepted your answer. However, having to reduce the column spacing to the point where entries are almost touching, I'm wondering whether resizing the original doesn't actually look better, although it's not strictly correct...

@Mico Yes, I've not changed anything, I just ran the example as is.

@Mico: Adding \the\textwidth into the example prints 345.0pt.

Thanks, this looks like a much cleaner solution. However, in actual fact my tables are larger, although with the same number of columns. I have amended the question accordingly. Now I get overfull hbox errors, e.g. the table isn't scaling down to 0.48\textwidth...

comment typeset large uncertainties using siunitx
@Jake: Actually the numbers are quantiles and the errors are the 95% confidence of the Marritz-Jarrett standard errors. I'm not a statistician, so any suggestions are welcome! Really I would just like a way to say the numbers aren't trustworthy without having to put in the large errors...

@David Carlisle: I've got the tabular environment inside a subtable, e.g. \begin{subtable}[b]{0.48\textwidth}. If I don't put the tabular into a resizebox, the table is not resized to fit 0.48\textwidth. I'm probably missing something...

The problem is that I have lots of data and tables are arranged side-by-side. If I don't do the resize-huge font hack, the font becomes too small.

comment \bfseries and alignment in table
Thanks, that's fantastic! This also has the pleasant side-effect of making the facing subtables exactly the same size, even if various fields are bold.
