• In order to perform a more complete census of active galactic nuclei (AGN) in the local Universe, we investigate the use of the HeII~$\lambda 4685$ emission line diagnostic diagram by Shirazi & Brinchmann (2012) in addition to the standard methods based on other optical emission lines. The He II based diagnostics is more sensitive to AGN ionization in the presence of strong star formation than conventional line diagnostics. We survey a magnitude-limited sample of 63,915 galaxies from the Sloan… CONTINUE READING
