Magnetic susceptibility and magnetization data are presented for the Nd2-xCexCuO4-δ system. The Nd local moments are seen to be crucial in interpreting the magnetic response. Evidence for a pervasive diamagnetic component (onsetting near 24 K) in the low field response, which is sharply maximized near x = 0.16, is presented.
