1  JANOT 2020 applies a correction to LEP-SLC 2006 using an updated Bhabha cross section calculation. This result also includes a correction to account for correlated luminosity bias as presented in VOUTSINAS 2020 .
2  VOUTSINAS 2020 applies a correction to LEP-SLC 2006 to account for correlated luminosity bias.
3  Combined fit from ALEPH, DELPHI, L3 and OPAL Experiments.
4  Simultaneous fits to all measured cross section data from all four LEP experiments.
