Weighted mean of the uncorrected LBG counts of our survey. The LBG count numbers by Nonino et al. (2009) and Reddy et al. (2008) are not corrected for contamination. The count numbers by Ly et al. (2011) and Capak et al. (2004) are corrected for star contamination. We also show the original number-count curve by Steidel et al. (1999), corrected for intelopers. Among recent works, we present the curve for field-1 by van der Burg et al. (2010) and the surface density presented by Bian et al. (2013) for the Botes survey.
