Table 2.

Best-fitting parameters of the density variations.

αν ( × 104) hza βν ( × 103) hzb hR
(star kpc−3) (kpc) (star kpc−3) (kpc) (kpc)
North 8.096 0.262 3.556 0.827 2.162
South 8.108 0.219 9.291 0.638 3.113

Notes. Parameters from Eq. (2) derived from the MCMC method for two sets of volumes: the five in the north and the five in the south. The parameters αν and βν are the normalisation factors such that the density of stars at zero height and solar radius is ν(R0, 0) = αν + βν. The parameters hza and hzb are the scale heights and hR is the scale length.
