The most significant and practical figure of merit in axion haloscope searches is the scanning rate, because of the unknown axion mass. Even under the best experimental parameters, the only way to improve the figure of merit is to increase the experimentally designed signal to noise ratio in the axion haloscope search analysis procedure. In this paper, we report an improved axion haloscope search analysis, developed using CAPP-8TB. By fully incorporating the known negative correlations induced by the background parametrizations, the figure of merit of the CAPP-8TB haloscope search was increased by about 17\% for the scanning rate, with about an 8\% improvement in the signal to noise ratio. In addition, the physics results can be retrieved directly from the standard Gaussian statistics of the data, at any confidence level.
