A nuclear data evaluation (half-lives, emission energies and probabilities) of the nuclides of the Ra-226 chain ending at Pb-210 (not included) has been performed taking into account the new data available in the literature. The need for new absolute measurements of the decay parameters for some nuclides of the decay chain is also emphasized.
