Abstract
The current experimental status of vector boson p(T) measurements is review ed. The recent Monte Carlo implementations of vector boson p(T) distributio ns are compared with the data and the issues involved in making a meaningfu l comparison are outlined. The method used by CDF to obtain a W p(T) distri bution from the measured Z p(T) distribution is also described.
