    A review is given of nuclear data problems encountered in activity measurements for reactor neutron dosimetry, as observed in the Euratom Working Group on Reactor Dosimetry and its subgroup on nuclear data. The situation with respect to decay data, cross sections, and fission yields is discussed. Special attention is paid to the treatment of inconsistent data sets and to the role of covariances.
