This paper presents an updated compilation of occupational radiation exposures in Taiwan, Republic of China, for the years 1962–1983. The highest collective dose equivalent occurred in 1981 and was estimated to be 535.318 man-rem, and the average measurable dose equivalent per worker is about 0.25 rem in the same year. All data analyzed were plotted on log-probability paper. A brief prospectus on the health implications of the annual occupational dose equivalents is also provided, using the year 1981 as an example.
