An evaluation of the geogenic radon potential (GRP) of Johor state, Malaysia was conducted, using field measured data of radon activity concentration in soil gas and the soil gas permeability. The highest GRP value of 53.67 was obtained in the southernmost part of this study location. Kruskal–Wallis test on the median values of GRP data, reveals a statistically significant difference between the soil types and geological formations, with p = 0.018 and p = 0.046, respectively. The first radon potential map of Johor state is established, and three GRP hotspots were identified.
