Abstract

Difficulties in deriving the distribution of SNRs in the Galaxy from their observed distribution on the sky are discussed. These include the selection effects that apply to the identification of SNRs, and the uncertainties in the distances of most SNRs. Although it is clear that the distribution of high surfacebrightness remnants is concentrated in a nuclear disk, it is not possible to derive the distribution for SNRs within the solar circle in any detail.
