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.
