This study investigated radon ((222)Rn) in 1460 drilled wells in Stockholm County, taking into consideration a number of factors that were originally considered to be independent sources of information. A combined approach of GIS and multivariate statistical analyses were used. The results show that the following factors clearly affect the radon content: bedrock, distance to fracture, topography and the use of the well.
