Answer: Never
Explanation: Slabs are closer to the living area. Having a slab home is like living in your basement. Radon is higher in some areas than others. The predominant driving force is building induced suction. Furnace, bathroom exhaust vents, kitchen exhaust vents and such will literally pull the air from the soil into the house. Most people don't realize that concrete is porous and soil gas can penetrate the concrete, especially cracks in the slab. In addition plumbing block outs for tubs and sinks are typically hidden yet open to soil gas in your slab home.
