A parametric analysis of the fine and the magnetic dipole hyperfine structure for the three configurations of odd parity 4d(3)5s5p, 4d(4)5p and 4d(2)5s(2)5p was performed. Effective one-electron parameters were determined and theoretical predictions are given for the magnetic dipole hyperfine structure constants A for the levels of these three configurations. Additionally, 12 new energy levels could be found, four of odd and eight of even parity, by re-analysing data for experimental wavelengths of Nb.
