Twenty- five percent of the scientific time of this mission is devoted to a survey of 402 bright, small-diameter extra-galactic radio sources at 5-GHz. The major goals of the VSOP Survey are statistical in nature: to determine the brightness temperature and approximate structure; to provide a source list for use with future space VLBI missions; and to compare radio properties with other data throughout the EM spectrum. This paper describes: the compilation of a complete list of radio sources associated with active galactic nuclei (AGN); the selection of the subsample of sources to be observed with VSOP; the extensive ground resources used for the Survey; the status of the observations as of 2000 July; the data-analysis methods; and several examples of results from the VSOP Survey. More detailed results from the full sample will be given in future papers. File Summary:

Note (1): the asterisk indicates that the spectral index or galactic latitude are outside of the sample specifications (α>-0.45 and |b|>10°) and the source is not formally part of the complete sample. Some of these sources have S5GHz>5.0Jy (all such sources were included) and some sources appear to have a spectral index α←0.45, based on information not available when the source list was first compiled. A 'd' was added for the source J1932-4546/J1932-4536 having a 10arcmin error in declination and name (see the "History" section below).
History: * 27-Jun-2003: Prepared via OCR at CDS. * 16-Sep-2009: Declination and JName of source originally named 'J1932-4546' seems to be in error by exactly 10arcmin, the actual radio source (QSO B1929-457) being at declination -45:36:37.9; this correction was applied in this electronic version of the table.
