From the magnitude-limited RSA catalog, the redshift distribution of catalog entries is shown here (less a single object at 9875 km/s). From the wide range of cz we see that the volumes sampled at various luminosities differ by factors of order 10 6 . Thus careful allowances for sample properties is crucial to measuring the
