A brief account of the present status of tokamak performance is given, followed by a description of the properties of the ideal thermonuclear neutron source. The neutron measuring systems installed at JET are presented, along with some typical results. Some exceptional results are also presented to indicate the manner in which the properties of the actual neutron source deviate from the ideal, since the identification of such situations is essential to prevent the wrong interpretation of the measurement of the total neutron yield. Areas in which the quality of the nuclear data or the measuring techniques employed are deemed to be unsatisfactory are highlighted.
