Abstract
The report presents data that were compiled from Federal agencies, states, nuclear facilities, and special studies on the following radiation source categories: ambient environmental radiation, technologically enhanced radiation, fallout, uranium fuel cycle, federal facilities, medical, occupational, and industrial radiation, nonionizing radiation, and other miscellaneous sources. For some of these source categories the available radiation dose data were incomplete. However from the available data, it was found that the largest source of ionizing radiation dose to the population was 10 million person-rem from ambient ionizing radiation. The second largest dose was 3 million person-rem from use of radio-pharmaceuticals. About 3 million person-rem were also attributed to technologically enhanced natural radiation. Doses from all other source categories, for which data were available, resulted in less than 0.1 percent of the total population dose.
