We carried out a millimeter wavelength line survey between ∼79 and 356GHz with the IRAM-30m telescope. We analysed the molecular lines detected in IK Tau using the population diagram technique to derive rotational temperatures and column densities. We conducted a radiative transfer analysis of the SO2 lines, which also helped us to verify the validity of the approximated method of the population diagram for the rest of the molecules. Description: These tables include the energy levels and polynomial coefficients needed to derive the rate coefficients of SO2. Each energy level in so2level.dat is uniquely identified by a identifier number used in the file so2pcoef.dat. File so2pcoef.dat contains polynomial coefficients that fit the decimal logarithm of the collisional rates between two levels computed by Balanca et al. (2016MNRAS.460.3766B). A sixth order polynomial reproduces with a relative error below 30% all rates between 20 and 1000K for the 410 energy levels used in the calculations.
