Secondary neutron-production double-differential cross sections (DDXs) have been measured from interactions of 137 MeV and 200 MeV protons in a natural carbon target. The data were measured between 0$$^{circ}$$ and 25$$^{circ}$$ in the laboratory. Benchmark calculations were carried out with the PHITS code using the evaluated nuclear data files of JENDL/HE-2007 and ENDF/B-VII, and the theoretical models of Bertini-GEM and ISOBAR-GEM. For the 137 MeV proton incidence, calculations using JENDL/HE-2007 generally reproduced the shape and the amount of experimental spectra well including the ground state of the $$^{12}$$N state produced by the $$^{12}$$C(p,n)$$^{12}$$N reaction. ISOBAR predicts the nucleon emission to the forward angles qualitatively better than the Bertini model and JENDL/HE-2007. These experimental data will be useful to evaluate the carbon data and as benchmark data for investigating the validity of the Monte Carlo simulation for the shielding design of accelerator facilities.
