We compile 41 H(z) data from literature and use them to constrain O Lambda CDM and flat Lambda CDM parameters. We show that the available H(z) suffers from uncertainties overestimation and propose a Bayesian method to reduce them. As a result of this method, using H(z) only, we find, in the context of O Lambda CDM, H-0 = 69.5 +/- 2.5 kms(-1) Mpc(-1), Omega(m) = 0.242 +/- 0.036, and Omega(Lambda) = 0.68 +/- 0.14. In the context of flat Lambda CDMmodel, we have found H-0 = 70.4 +/- 1.2 kms(-1) Mpc(-1) and Omega(m) = 0.256 +/- 0.014. This corresponds to an uncertainty reduction of up to approximate to 30 per cent when compared to the uncorrected analysis in both cases. (AU)
