In this work we have collected observational data for 1328 radio pulsars (PSRs). Distances and others parameters for these PSRs were estimated. We present improved distance estimates for radio PSRs by considering the importance of their physical properties and improvement in the distribution of star formation regions in the Galaxy. For this purpose, a list of accurate calibrators was constructed and several natural criteria were established. The following values were calculated from observational data on PSRs: luminosities at 400 MHz and 1400 MHz, characteristic times, strength of magnetic field and rate of rotation energy loss. This compilation of data is mainly necessary for statistical investigations and to study the physical properties of neutron stars. All the data have been prepared and are given in a publicly accessible Web page http://www.xrbc.org/pulsar/.
