We avoid the systematic errors plaguing previous studies of AGN accretion rates by using accurate intrinsic accretion luminosities (Lint) from well-sampled multiwavelength spectral energy distributions from the Cosmic Evolution Survey, and accurate black hole masses derived from virial scaling relations (for broad-line AGNs) or host-AGN relations (for narrow-line and lineless AGNs). Description: We select a sample of 348 AGNs from the COSMOS (Scoville et al. 2007ApJS..172...38S) field, which is based on the 1.7deg2 Hubble Space Telescope (HST)/Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) mosaic. These AGNs have multiwavelength data in the form of Spitzer/IRAC, HST/ACS, Subaru/Suprime-Cam, GALEX, XMM-Newton, and Chandra observations. The sample is selected from the parent catalog of 1651 XMM-COSMOS point sources with optical counterparts (Brusa et al. 2010, Cat. J/ApJ/716/348). File Summary:

Note (1): Object type as follows: BL = broad emission line (Type 1 AGN); NL = narrow emission line (Type 2 AGN); OD = absorption line (lineless or optically dull AGN). Note (2): Spectrum source as follows: S = SDSS archive; I = Magellan/IMACS campaign (Trump et al. 2009, Cat. J/ApJ/696/1195); Z = zCOSMOS VLT/VIMOS campaign (Lilly et al. 2007, Cat. J/ApJS/172/70).
