A further search for variable stars has been conducted in the publicly available data of the Northern Sky Variability Survey (NSVS). The statistical properties of the star, the magnitude, magnitude scatter and median error were entered into a multi-factor algorithm to evaluate the most promising stars for further examination and analysis. The default settings for the NSVS user interface were used except, following the suggestion of Wils, Lloyd and Bernhard (2006), the APINCOMPL flag was set and the RADECFLIP flags unset. Only stars not listed in the "Combined General Catalogue of Variable Stars (Samus+ 2004)", or in the "Suspected Variable stars and Supplement", or in "Red Variables in the NSVS (Williams+, 2004)" or identified as variable in Simbad or identified in the International Variable Star Index have been included.
