Abstract The paper aims to make available a wide set of experimental results deriving from a 30-months measurement campaigns (1999-2001) on going in Central and Southern Italy, capable of detecting the indoor radon concentration levels in some 1000 buildings. The research is supported by LIFE, Calabria Regional Authority, Italian Ministry of University and Scientific Research and several Builders Association. The methodology is based on the use of high quality portable ionisation chambers, having an error less than 5% and a certified calibrat
