1  PDG 2016 is the PDG average using the world average ${{\mathit m}_{{W}}}$ and ${{\mathit m}_{{Z}}}$ values as quoted in this edition of $\mathit Review~of~Particle~Physics$. The directly measured values of ${{\mathit m}_{{W}}}/{{\mathit m}_{{Z}}}$ are not used as their correlation with the Tevatron measured ${{\mathit m}_{{W}}}$ is unknown.
2  ABBOTT 1998N obtain this from a study of 28323 ${{\mathit W}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit e}}{{\mathit \nu}_{{e}}}$ and 3294 ${{\mathit Z}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit e}^{+}}{{\mathit e}^{-}}$ decays. Of this latter sample, 2179 events are used to calibrate the electron energy scale.
3  ABBOTT 1998P obtain this from a study of 5982 ${{\mathit W}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit e}}{{\mathit \nu}_{{e}}}$ events. The systematic error includes an uncertainty of $\pm0.00175$ due to the electron energy scale.
4  Scale error cancels in this ratio.
