In an earlier article, atomic radii of elements of Groups 1A - 8A were shown to be proportional to their Bohr radii obtained from the first ionization potentials and the constants of proportionality were shown to be simple functions of the Golden ratio. Here it is shown that the above finding holds also for elements of Groups 1B - 8B including Lanthanides and Actinides. All the relevant data are presented in Tables and the correlations are shown in graphs. Revised data for some of the elements of Groups 1A - 8A, have also been included.
