We compile a flux-limited (f2-10keV≥1x10-12erg/s/cm2) sample including 114 radio-quiet objects, with the 2-10keV luminosity ranging from 1041 to 1045erg/s. 86 out of these 114 AGNs are included in the CAIXA catalogue (Bianchi et al. 2009, Cat. J/A+A/495/421). The redshift range of the present sample is z<0.37, with only seven objects having z>0.2. File Summary:

Note (1): Source type as follows: NELG = Narrow-emission-line galaxy, NLS1 = Narrow line Seyfert 1 galaxy, BLS1 = Broad line Seyfert 1 galaxy. NELGs are intermediate Seyfert galaxies whose broad line regions are lightly obscured. We take NELGs with Γ>2.0 as NLS1s in our analysis. Note (2): The intrinsic width is fixed at 10eV for the EW measurements. Note (3): a = Object with the FWHMHβ calculated from the FWHMHα using the relation FWHMHβ=1070*(FWHMHα/1000)1.03km/s given in Greene & Ho (2005ApJ...630..122G). This object has the FWHMHα measurement but lacks the FWHMHβ measurement. FWHMHα of these objects are taken from Pietsch et al. (1998A&A...333...48P), Rodriguez-Ardila et al. (2000ApJS..126...63R) and Piconcelli et al. (2006A&A...453..839P), respectively. Note (4): Calculated from the data available in Bianchi et al. (2009, Cat. J/A+A/495/421).
