The combined NVSS-FIRST galaxies (CoNFIG) sample. II. Comparison of space densities in the Fanaroff-Riley dichotomy. Gendre M.A., Best P.N., Wall J.V. <Mon. Not. R. Astron. Soc., 404, 1719-1732 (2010)> =2010MNRAS.404.1719G

First, we present the concluding steps in constructing the Combined NVSS-FIRST Galaxies (CoNFIG) catalogue, including new Very Large Array observations, optical identifications and redshift estimates. The final catalogue consists of 859 sources over four samples (CoNFIG-1, -2, -3 and -4 with flux density limits of S1.4GHz=1.3, 0.8, 0.2 and 0.05Jy, respectively). It is 95.7 per cent complete in radio morphology classification and 74.3 per cent of the sources have redshift data. Combining CoNFIG with complementary samples, the distribution and evolution of FR I and FR II sources are investigated. We find that FR I sources undergo mild evolution and that, at the same radio luminosity, FR I and FR II sources show similar space density enhancements in various redshift ranges, possibly implying a common evolution. Description: The CoNFIG catalogue consists of four samples, CoNFIG-1, -2, -3 and -4, which include all sources selected from the NRAO-VLA Sky Survey (NVSS) catalogue with S1.4GHz≥1.3, 0.8, 0.2 and 0.05Jy respectively in defined areas.

Note (2): Flag as follows: w = Wide Angle Tail source c = possible core-jet source Note (4): Redshift type as follows: S = spectroscopic redshift P = SDSS photoz2 photometric redshift K = 2MASS Ks-z estimate I = SDSS i-z estimate Z = SDSS z-z estimate R = SDSS r-z estimate G = SDSS g-z estimate Note (5): o denotes sources for which the identification was found in another catalog than SDSS or 2MASS. Note (6): For No 233 of config1, in original file, Declination contains the Right ascension value !! so there is only optical counterpart Right ascension in the table.

Global notes: Note (G1): Morphological types as follows: C = Compact sources C* = Confirmed compact sources from the VLBA calibrator list S* = Confirmed compact sources which show a steep (α≪-0.6) spectral index. These are probably CSS sources. I = FR I type sources II = FR II type sources U = sources with uncertain morphology
