A brief overview of the CODATA-2006 adjustment (P.J. Mohr, B.N. Taylor, and D.B. Newell, CODATA Recommended values of the fundamental physical constants: 2006, Rev. Mod. Phys. 80, (2008) 633) is presented. The attention is focussed on the most important data that appeared since the previous adjustment in 2002, and on changes in the recommended values of 2006 in comparison with the results of 2002. We consider a structure of the input data and their correlations and analyze the results and the data group by group. We also discuss consequences of the adjustment.
