Thick disc scale-height relative to the fit to Eq. (18) as a function of the thick to thin disc mid-plane density ratio averaged over all the axial bins with a valid fit. The considered fit is that for all galaxies (that is, not excluding gas-poor galaxies). Filled black dots correspond to gas-rich galaxies, and grey circles correspond to gas-poor galaxies.
