Abstract

We present the data for a redshift survey of galaxies selected from the data base of the Infrared Astronomical Satellite (IRAS). The sample is flux limited to 1.936 Jy at 60 μm and covers 11.01 sr of the sky. It consists of 5014 objects, of which 2658 are galaxies. The remaining 2356 sources are listed in a separate table with identifications. Redshift data are also given for 212 IRAS galaxies which are not part of the complete sample, but were measured in conjunction with this project. The complete data are available in a machine-readable form through the National Space Science Data Center.
