EFSTATHIOU Department of Physics, Oxford University, Keble Road, Oxford, OXI 3IlH, England, UK; g.efstathiou@physics.oxford.ac.nk Received 1996 March 7; accepted 1996 May 3 ABSTRACT The Stromlo-APM Redshift Survey consists of 1797 galaxies with b_J_ < 17.15 selected randomly at a rate of 1 in 20 from automated plate measurement (APM) scans. The survey covers a solid angle of 1.3 sr (4300 deg^2^) in the south Galactic cap. Redshifts have been measured for 1790 (99.6%) of the galaxies. The median galaxy recession velocity is 15,300 km s^-1^, and so the volume probed is V ~ 1.38 x 10^6^ h^-3^ Mpc^3^. In this paper we describe the construction of the redshift catalog and present the survey data. Subject headings: catalogs - galaxies: distances and redshifts - surveys - techniques: radial velocities
