Probability of reselection for PHANGS–ALMA targets. Probability that actual PHANGS–ALMA targets would be re-selected, based on our Monte Carlo calculations and galaxy property estimates by Leroy et al. (2019). The gray region illustrates values excluded by our nominal selection criteria. The color of each point shows the fraction of realizations in which it is re-selected during the Monte Carlo calculations based on distance, inclination, mass, and specific star formation rate. Our high-mass, high SFR targets usually meet our selection criteria. The variable WISE band 1 mass-to-light ratio used in Leroy et al. (2019) and adopted in Section 4 leads us to reassess some of our lower-mass targets as likely having ﹩{\mathrm{log}}_{10}{M}_{\star }[{M}_{\odot }]\approx 9.5\mbox{--}9.75﹩. Otherwise, most of the deviation from p = 1 reflects the persistent uncertainty in the distances to nearby galaxies.
