We use the partial Kendall's tau correlation analysis to check the link between radio properties of parsec-scale jets and optical nuclear luminosities of host active galactic nuclei (AGN). Description: We present the data of 135 superluminal active galactic nuclei (AGN) from the statistically complete MOJAVE-1 (Monitoring of Jets in AGN with VLBA Experiments) sample. Of the 135 radio-loud AGN in the MOJAVE-1 sample there are 101 quasars, 22 BL Lacs, 8 galaxies, and 3 unidentified objects. We present the extended radio emission at 151MHz, jet power and apparent speed of the jet, and optical nuclear emission and optical luminosity at 5100 Angstrom. File Summary:
