Abstract Systematic ion substitution has been performed on the Co site in the rock-salt (RS)-type $[Ca_{2}CoO_{3}]$ subsystem of misfit-layered cobalt oxide $[Ca_{2}(Co_{1-x}A_{x})O_{3-delta}]$ $_{0.62}CoO_{2}$ (A = Nb, Ru, Ta, Pb, W, La and Zr). The oxygen deficiency delta and the decomposition temperature $T_{d}$ of the substituted samples have been determined by means of the thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). Upon heating, the oxygen atoms are gradually released from the RS-type subsystem up to delta~0.10. A small amount (x = 0.10) of the substitution remarkably increases Tdfrom 1173 K (x = 0) up to 1246 K (A = Nb). The Pb-substituted samples show substantial decrease in electrical resistivity p from 19.2 mOmegacm to 13.8 mOmegacm (x = 0.10) at 950 K. The highest thermoelectric power, $S^{2}p^{-1}$ = 2.1times10-4$WK^{-2}$ $m^{-1}$ , is realized for the Pb-substituted sample with x = 0.10 at 950 K
