The most important properties of a catalogue with 427 entries and significant subsets are analysed. The complete sample contains 183 statistically confirmed ELGs in a sky area of 151deg2 and redshift up to 0.14. We determine the parameters of the Hα luminosity function using the Hα+[NII] flux directly measured on the ELG spectra in this sample, and the star formation rate density derived is in agreement with values reported in the literature. Description: The CUYS is being carried out on the 1-m Schmidt telescope located at the Venezuelan National Astronomical Observatory, Llano del Hato, Merida, Venezuela. Observations were performed in the second half of 1999 and the beginning of 2000. File Summary:
