The purpose of this paper is to test if some specific factors are affecting radon concentration in Attica, Greece. Attica is a populous city which contains 50% of the total population of Greece. The scientific program Thalis of Technological Education Institute (TEI) of Piraeus (TH-TEIPIR) is conducting radon-222 measurements in Attica dwellings The concentration of radon gas indoors is related to various factors. Some of the factors that are tested are the materials of the dwelling, the distance between the walls, the location of the measurement and the floor level.
