Notes. The biases are given as a fraction of the 1σ uncertainty on each parameter. A bias is considered significant if it reaches or exceeds 0.25σ, as at this point its uncorrected and corrected confidence contours overlap by less than 90%. The predicted biases from this correction are well below significance for all parameters.
