This result is based on an X-ray flux-limited sample of 219 AGNs discovered in the contiguous 80.7°2 region of the ROSAT North Ecliptic Pole (NEP) Survey (Cat. J/ApJS/149/29). File Summary:

Note (1): "a" indicates that RX J1824.7+6509 (NEP 5500) was formerly classified as a stellar X-ray source based on the literature. However, more recent work convincingly demonstrates this source is a type 1 AGN at z=0.303 (e.g., Engels et al. 1998, Cat. J/A+AS/128/507). Note (2): The count rate (0.1-2.4keV) is measured in a circular photometry aperture (5' radius). Note (3): We have converted from count rate to unabsorbed flux assuming a power-law spectrum with photon index of 2. The total flux accounts for the flux outside the photometry aperture and reflects the size correction applied to the detect flux. For point sources such as AGN this flux corretion factor is constant and equal to 1.0369. Note (4): Adopted cosmology:, ΩM=0.3, ΩΛ=0.7; K-correction factor of 1 for a power-law spectrum of photon index 2. Note (5): Typical uncertainty is ≤0.001.
