I recall from previous discussions that there is data that documents 
the radiation background throughout the USA. I have been to the US 
Geological website and have noted an image of the US that denotes 
various background dose rates in uR/hr. Is there a detailed listing 
of radiation background to a lower common denominator, such as by zip 
code, or by state and city or even just state?

Thanks for any information.
