On the assumption that radiation effects are directly proportional to the radiation dose without a threshold, then the sum of all doses to all individuals in a population is the collective effective dose with unit manSv. As an example, in a population consisting of 10 000 persons, each receives a dose of 0.1 mSv. The collective dose is the 10 000 × 0.0001 = 1manSv.
