Abstract:
This contains data products for LIGO-P2000077: "Population properties of compact objects from the second LIGO–Virgo Gravitational-Wave Transient Catalog"

For other relevant data products see:
https://dcc.ligo.org/LIGO-P2000223/public for parameter estimation results
https://dcc.ligo.org/LIGO-P2000217/public for the data product describing O3a detection sensitivity
(An estimate of the detector sensitivity for O1+O2, as used in the paper, is found below.)

The attached Jupyter notebook contains scripts to create all Figures in the text, aside from the Fig. 23 script which is found here: cwb_rnp_figs.zip. The relevant data read in by the notebook can be found on this page.

Additionally, we provide instructions and an example script for using the "full posterior" data files contained in Multiple-Fig-Data/synthetic_observed_samples/*full_posterior.hdf5. These data files contain joint posterior samples for event parameters and population hyperparameters. These instructions can be found in the file full-posterior-instructions.md and the example script is full-posterior-example.py. Accompanying example plots are 190521.png and 190924.png.
