We report the results of a spectropolarimetric survey of the CfA and 12 μm samples of Seyfert 2 (S2) galaxies. Polarized (hidden) broad-line regions (HBLRs) are confirmed in a number of galaxies, and several new cases (F02581-1136, MCG -3-58-7, NGC 5995, NGC 6552, NGC 7682) are reported. The 12 μm S2 galaxy sample shows a significantly higher incidence of HBLRs (50%) than its CfA counterpart (30%), suggesting that the latter may be incomplete in hidden active galactic nuclei. Compared to the… Expand
