Dear Rainier,

This is a perfect document. Thank you very much for sending it to me. I
have a whole weekend at home for a change, and have time to review it.

the attached EPA-Document:

Assessment of Variations in Radiation Exposure in the United States 
Contract Number EP-D-05-002 
Work Assignment No. 1-03 
Prepared for: 
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency 
Office of Radiation and Indoor Air 
1310 L Street, N.W. 
Washington, DC 20005 
July 15, 2005

in addition to maps has a table:

Total Average Annual Doses (mrem/year EDE) from Cosmic Radiation,
Terrestrial Radiation, and Indoor Radon

listing these data for states.

I hope that helps.

Best regards, Rainer
