Neutron reduced widths Γn0 and Γn1 are reported for about 200 resonances observed in neutron total cross sections of Ca40, 44, Ti48, Cr50, 52, 54, Fe54, 56, Ni58, 60, Sr88, Y89, Sn124, Te130, Ba136, 138, and Pb206, 207, 208, in the energy region 1 to 200 kev. Average parameters Γn0, Γn0 D, and Γn(1) D have been derived and the Wigner distribution for local spacings and the Porter-Thomas distribution for reduced widths are verified for the resonances in the even-even nuclei Ca40, Fe56, Ni58, and Ni60. A simple method of area analysis which is less tedious and time consuming than the method reported before in Part III is also described.
