Note (1): Optical identification: G: galaxy BL: BL lac object Q: QSO S: Seyfert galaxy S1: Seyfert 1 galaxy S1.5: Seyfert 1.5 galaxy S2: Seyfert 2 galaxy S3: Seyfert 3 galaxy Note (2): Sidedness of the outer 90% of the jets classification. We adopted the same definition as in Bridle (1986, Can. J. Phys. 64, 353) and Bridle & Perley (1984ARA&A..22..319B): one side "1", two side "2", and transition "T", according to the ratio of luminosities between the brighter and fainter jets, larger than 4, less than 4, or intermediate. The ratio is usually higher near the core and becomes smaller towards the end of a jet. There is no special physical reason to use 4 instead of other values. Note (3): Jet morphology code: C: C-symmetry S: S-symmetry L: L-shape B: very complicated Note (4): Jet position angle at the nearest to the core. The letters N, E, S, W, NE, SE, NW, and SW represent north, east, south, west, north-east, south-east, north-west, and south-west, respectively. We used the position angle to identify the jets in a radio source. If the difference of position angles of a jet on pc- and kpc- scales is significant, we used the one detected on the kpc-scale. If the jet is one-sided or one jet is significantly brighter than the other one in two-sided sources, the letters C-J follow the counter (weaker) jet.
