Delayed-neutrons are of great importance for reactor operations. Current abundances derive from either a measurement performed in 1957 by Keepin or by a summation calculation performed by Brady and England in 1989. In this work, a code has been written to compute a new set of delayed-neutron abundances as well as to estimate uncertainties and correlations through a Monte Carlo method and a Bayesian inference. An experiment will take place in the future to verify the validity of the calculated quantities.
