It has been recently suggested [1] that a subdominant fraction of dark matter decaying after recombination may alleviate tension between high-redshift (CMB anisotropy) and low-redshift (Hubble constant, cluster counts) measurements. In this report, we continue our previous study [2] of the decaying dark matter (DDM) model adding all available recent baryon acoustic oscillation (BAO) and redshift space distortions (RSD) measurements. We find that the BAO/RSD measurements generically prefer the standard ΛCDM and combined with other cosmological measurements impose an upper limit on the DDM fraction at the level of ∼5%, strengthening by a factor of 1.5 limits obtained in [2] mostly from CMB data. However, the numbers vary from one analysis to other based on the same Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS) Data Release 12 (DR12) galaxy sample. Overall, the model with a few percent DDM fraction provides a better fit to the combined cosmological data as compared to the ΛCDM: the cluster counting and direct measurements of the Hubble parameter are responsible for that. The improvement can be as large as 1.5σ and grows to 3.3σ when the CMB lensing power amplitude AL is introduced as a free fitting parameter.
