Abstract
The paper presents the results of a refined calculation of the average individual annual effective doses to the population of the regions of Russia from exposure to the cosmic radiation. The population-weighted average values of the altitude and latitude of the main settlements, which are home to at least 50 percent of the population of the region, were used as the altitude and latitude of the region. In addition, all settlements with a population of at least 20 thousand people were included in the calculation. Coverage of the population of the regions of Russia in the calculation varies from 50.1 to 95.8 percent (excluding three cities of Federal importance wit...
