1  ABBIENDI 2001A error includes approximately $3.6$ MeV due to statistics, 1$~$MeV due to event selection systematics, and $1.3$ MeV due to LEP energy uncertainty.
2  The error includes $1.2$ MeV due to LEP energy uncertainty.
3  The error includes $1.3$ MeV due to LEP energy uncertainty.
4  BARATE 2000C error includes approximately $3.8$ MeV due to statistics, $0.9~$MeV due to experimental systematics, and $1.3~$MeV due to LEP energy uncertainty.
5  ABBIENDI 2004G obtain this result using the S$-$matrix formalism for a combined fit to their cross section and asymmetry data at the ${{\mathit Z}}$ peak and their data at $130 - 209$ GeV. The authors have corrected the measurement for the 1 MeV shift with respect to the Breit$-$Wigner fits.
6  ACCIARRI 2000Q interpret the $\mathit s$-dependence of the cross sections and lepton forward-backward asymmetries in the framework of the S-matrix formalism. They fit to their cross section and asymmetry data at high energies, using the results of S-matrix fits to ${{\mathit Z}}$-peak data (ACCIARRI 2000C) as constraints. The $130 - 189$ GeV data constrains the ${{\mathit \gamma}}/{{\mathit Z}}$ interference term. The authors have corrected the measurement for the $0.9$ MeV shift with respect to the Breit-Wigner fits.
7  ABREU 1996R obtain this value from a study of the interference between initial and final state radiation in the process ${{\mathit e}^{+}}$ ${{\mathit e}^{-}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit Z}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit \mu}^{+}}{{\mathit \mu}^{-}}$ .
8  ABRAMS 1989B uncertainty includes 50 MeV due to the miniSAM background subtraction error.
9  ALBAJAR 1989 result is from a total sample of 33 ${{\mathit Z}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit e}^{+}}{{\mathit e}^{-}}$ events.
10  Quoted values of ANSARI 1987 are from direct fit. Ratio of ${{\mathit Z}}$ and ${{\mathit W}}$ production gives either $\Gamma\mathrm {({{\mathit Z}})}$ $<$ ($1.09$ $\pm0.07$) ${\times }$ $\Gamma\mathrm {({{\mathit W}})}$, CL = 90$\%$ or $\Gamma\mathrm {({{\mathit Z}})}$ = ($0.82$ ${}^{+0.19}_{-0.14}$ $\pm0.06$) ${\times }$ $\Gamma\mathrm {({{\mathit W}})}$. Assuming Standard-Model value $\Gamma\mathrm {({{\mathit W}})}$ = 2.65 GeV then gives $\Gamma\mathrm {({{\mathit Z}})}$ $<$ $2.89$ $\pm0.19$ or = $2.17$ ${}^{+0.50}_{-0.37}$ $\pm0.16$.
