Ridge yield as a function of multiplicity compared to the predictions of PYTHIA 8.3  with Monash tune  (green) and string shoving  (orange) as well as EPOS LHC simulations  (blue). Due to a larger jet fragmentation peak width in the simulations than in data, the yield is extracted within $2<|\dEta|<4$ for the model calculations. A 95\% CL is indicated for model calculations when the lower limit of statistical uncertainty is below zero. Some points are slightly displaced along the $x$-axis for better visualization. The band indicates the statistical uncertainty from the event generation and the extraction procedure.
