The Michigan-Tololo sample of quasars is discussed using observational data for 48% of this sample. Emission-line quasar characteristics are confirmed for 80% of the objects observed, including at least four new quasars with spectral features indicative of 'supernova-like' outflow. Approximately 73% of the redshifts predicted from the discovery plates are found to be accurate, with a mean error in z of 0.03; a large range of z (from about 0.1 to 3.16) is represented in the sample. The interpretation of the observed redshift distribution for quasars is strongly dependent upon the significance ascribed to wavelength-dependent selection effects. It appears that the behavior of the comoving quasar density above z = 2.0 may be represented by a constant or an exponential increase.
