The authors report enumeration results for the radius of gyration and caliper size distribution of self-avoiding unrooted polygons of up to 28 steps, on the square lattice. The (second moment) radius of gyration series is sufficiently smooth to allow verification of the theoretical prediction v(rings)=v(walks) to 0.2% accuracy.
