Abstract The serum selenium levels in 367 healthy adult (25-64 yr) Central Bohemia residents, 176 men and 191 women, were determined using atomic absorption spectrometry. An extremely wide range of values was found in the whole population sample (< 20-296 micrograms/L) as well as in each sex or age category studied. The mean selenium concentration and 95\% confidence interval calculated after logarithmic transformation of the data were 74 micrograms/L (71-77) for the whole population sample, 72 micrograms/L (67-76) for men, and 76 micrograms/L (72-81) for women. About 10\% of the residents exhibited serum selenium level below 45 micrograms/L. There was no significant correlation between serum selenium and sex, age, or smoking status of participants. However, the lowest average level was found in the group of heavy smoking women: 66 micrograms/L. The selenium status of the Central Bohemia population seems to be below European average. Groups of residents having a very low nutritional selenium intake may be expected to occur in this population.
