In the future, radioactive waste which generated from nuclear research facilities in Japan Atomic Energy Agency are planning to be buried for the near surface disposal. It is necessary to establish the method to evaluate the radioactivity concentrations of the radioactive wastes. In this work, we studied the evaluation method of radioactivity concentration based on radiochemical analysis data (H-3, C-14, Cl-36, Co-60, Ni-63, Sr-90, Mo-93, Nb-94, Tc-99, Ag-108m, Sn-126, I-129, Cs-137, Eu-152, Eu-154, U-233+234, U-238, Pu-238, Pu-239+240, Pu-241, Am-241, Am-243, Cm-244) which was generated from research facility Hot Laboratory. As a result of examining the application of the scaling factor method, the correlation with Key-nuclide in some nuclides which are Sr-90, I-129, Eu-154, U-233+234, Pu-238, Pu-239+240, Am-241, Cm-244 confirmed by the correlation coefficient and t-test. In the present radiochemical analysis data, the mean activity concentration method can be applied to all nuclides which could not be applied to the scaling factor method H-3, C-14, Cl-36, Ni-63, Mo-93, Nb-94, Tc-99, Ag-108m, Sn-126, Eu-152, U-238, Pu-241 and Am-243. Ni-63, Tc-99, Eu-152 and U-238 could be applied to the scaling factor method with getting several additional data, this study will be continued to review for the practical evaluation method.
