Patterns of dose incurred by workers on the national radiological protection board's dose record keeping service. II. Individual dosemeter assessments
Darby SC., Kendall GM., Greenslade E.
The paper presents data on the distribution of individual dosemeter assessments. The Weibull distribution is found to provide a good description of the observations and may prove to be a useful tool for modelling such data. The effects of omitting doses below a certain prespecified recording level from a worker's dose history and of the dosemeter detection threshold are examined. There is a discussion of the problems involved in estimating realistic doses when dose histories contain threshold doses.
