Four sets of rates have been calculated, utilizing - where possible - consistent nuclear data for neutron separation energies and fission barriers from Thomas-Fermi (TF), Extended Thomas-Fermi plus Strutinsky Integral (ETFSI), Finite-Range Droplet Model (FRDM) and Hartree-Fock-Bogolyubov (HFB) predictions. Tables of calculated values as well as analytic seven parameter fits in the standard REACLIB format are supplied. We also discuss the sensitivity of the rates to the input, aiming at a better understanding of the uncertainties introduced by the nuclear input. Description: The organization of Tables 3-6 with calculated rates for 24 different values of T9 is extremely simple - all data are in 8 columns. The columns give, in this order, the target element, the atomic mass number A of the target, the temperature in T9, partition function of the target, neutron-induced fission rate for the ground state, neutron-induced fission rate with thermally populated target states, neutron capture rate for the ground state, neutron capture rate with thermally populated target states. The rates in Tables 3-6 were calculated on the basis of different mass and fission barrier predictions: ETFSI, TF and FRDM(masses)+TF(barriers), respectively (see main text of the paper for details). The fitting coefficients for the (n,g), (g,n), and neutron-induced fission rates (n,f) with different mass and fission-barrier predictions are placed in the Tables 7-18 (see example on how to use them in Appendix A of the main paper). The columns in Tables 7-18 are organized as follows: target element, atomic mass number A of the target, target charge number Z, the number of fitting curves i_{fit}, seven coefficients of the forward reaction a_i, and the mean square error for direct reactions. A value i{fit}=0 means that there is only one seven-parameter set to fit the rate. Values i_{fit}>1 give the number of parameter sets which have to be added up to yield the final rate, i.e. the rate r is calculated as r={sum.on.i}ri, with each ri computed from the i-th parameter set and using Eq. ri=exp(a0+a1/T9+a2/T91/3+a3*T91/3+a4*T9+a5*T95/3+a6*ln(T9)) (4).

Note (1): The rate r is calculated as r={Sum}ri, and each ri is computed as ri = exp(a0+a1/T9+a2/T91/3+a3*T91/3+a4*T9+a5*T95/3+a6*ln(T9)). When i=0, there is a single seven-parameter set to fit the rate.
