## Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy ProbeThe data made available through this page has been updated. The most recent version of this data may be accessed through /product/map/current/ The seven year TT power spectrum is produced by combining the
Maximum Likelihood estimated spectrum from l = 2-32 with the
pseudo-C The complete (unbinned) TT power spectrum data are provided as an ASCII table containing the following columns: - the multipole moment l
- the power spectrum in units of μK
^{2} - the error derived from the diagonal elements of the covariance matrix in units of μK
^{2} - the portion of column 3 attributed to measurement errors in units of μK
^{2} - the portion of column 3 attributed to cosmic variance in units of μK
^{2}, assuming the best-fit ΛCDM model.
The diagonal elements provide an estimate of the error, but should not be used as exact error bars. The complete Fisher matrix should be used for that purpose. A binned version of the power spectrum is also available in a separate ASCII file with the following columns: - the mean multipole moment l
- the smallest l contributing to the bin
- the largest l contributing to the bin
- the power spectrum in units of μK
^{2} - the error for the binned value, computed from the diagonal elements of the covariance matrix in units of μK
^{2} - the portion of column 5 attributed to measurement errors in units of μK
^{2} - the portion of column 5 attributed to cosmic variance in units of μK
^{2}, assuming the best-fit ΛCDM model.
