Typical measurement uncertainties of calibrated radiation devices are up to ± 30%.

Other main factors:

Place height above ground
soil condition on location
near or in buildings
differing natural background radiation
Equipment energy range
size of sensor
type of sensor
averaging algorithm
Method time interval
for long-term trend
for short-term peaks
