The measurements of radon activity concentration carried out in residential houses of V4 countries (Hungary, Poland and Slovakia) show that radon levels in these countries considerably exceed the world average. Therefore, the new radon data and statistical analysis are required from these four countries. Each partner chose a region in their own country, where radon concentration in residential buildings was expected to be higher. The results of the survey carried out in the period from March 2012 to May 2012 show that radon concentrations are <200 Bq m-3 in ~87 % of cases. However, dwellings with radon concentration ~800 Bq m-3 were found in Poland and Slovakia. It was also found that the distribution of radon frequency follows that of houses according to the year of their construction.
