The present article provides data on the content of radioactive and rare earth elements in the hair of residents of Northern (Akmola and North Kazakhstan regions) and South Kazakhstan (Kyzylorda and Turkestan regions), obtained by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). As a result of the study, the arithmetic mean and the vibration limit of the elements were determined. Comparative data on the average content of radioactive and rare-earth elements in North and South Kazakhstan were carried out. A cluster analysis of the association of elements was also carried out in the study.
