Price-Whelan, Adrian Michael; Agüeros, Marcel Andre; Fournier, Amanda P.; Street, Rachel; Ofek, Eran O.; Covey, Kevin R.; Levitan, David; Laher, Russ R.; Sesar, Branimir; Surace, Jason

These light curves are made available to the public as part of the publication of our recent paper, "Statistical Searches for Microlensing Events in Large, Non-Uniformly Sampled Time-Domain Surveys: A Test Using Palomar Transient Factory Data." We have selected ~10,000 light curves from the Palomar Transient Factory database that can be used to test the various statistical tools described in the paper.
